Annoying. Relentless. Ruthless. Vindictive.
Leave me alone.
All I want to do is enjoy my back yard, and by mid-July they will make it virtually impossible.
So now it's on.
It is my mission to get rid of them.
And don't feel bad for the little pests for a second.
I have warned them to stay away.
I have invested in bug spray, cortisone cream, calamine lotion, bite Md, citronella candles, medicated moisturizer and lawn spray.
But do you think they've taken the hint?
It's as if I'm sweeter than ever.
So it's time to up the ante.
it's time to show 'em who's boss.
Enter my newest purchase: the Black Flag 40 watt Bug Zapper.
Ironically enough, my installation of the zapper is what just inspired this post.
Because only mosquitoes would try to eat me alive as I'm unwrapping something to kill them.
I mean, not that I would have changed my mind, but you'd think they'd give it a shot.
So mosquitoes, if you're reading
(which if you're not, it'd be the first time you've left me alone all day),
I have a shocking surprise for you in the tree.
