How is it that I don't hear the sounds of traffic going by during the night, but one freaking little mosquito sounds like a jet hovering over my head???
I covered my head and tried to ignore it, but I knew he was still out there just waiting. I half expected him to start pulling the covers off my head. Why is he bothering ME instead of Dan?? Some say they are attracted to pleasant smells, so at least THAT is a huge load off my mind.
I ventured out from under the covers and I didn't hear any bzzzzing. I let out a big sigh and HE WAS BACK in an instant. I then remembered that some experts say that they are attracted to our breath....so I figured I'd hold mine and see if that helped.
By the time my facial color matched the blue in the bedspread, I couldn't hear the mosquito anymore (but it could have been because my ears were ready to pop from holding my breath.). I can only hold my breath for so long...and it isn't very long. But it did the trick! I didn't hear him anymore and was able to go back to sleep!
I got up to make the coffee and take my shower....never thinking about the mosquito. I nonchalantly itched my neck. Didn't think anything about it. Then I nonchalantly itched my forehead in a couple of places. Then the top of my head, then behind my ear.
By the time I got the coffee beans ground and the coffee going, I was an itching fool from the neck up! He nailed me pretty darn good. I look like I've got pimples on my forehead. and I look like I might have some kind of an eye condition developing because he got me right in the corner of my eye.
Once you know those itches are there, it is hard to ignore them. And Dan said he doesn't have any bites. I really DO want to be attractive, but NOT TO MOSQUITOES!!!
Have a safe Memorial Day weekend.
This isn't a mosquito but I was having fun with my camera yesterday. The blue one I increased the saturation and that is why it is blue (for fun).
