I am being hunted.

For the last 3 nights, I have been terrorized.  Every morning when I get, I am finding a new mosquito bite.  I know it’s a flippin’ mosquito because I’ve seen it buzzing around.  But when I try to kill it, I lose sight of it.  She’s a smart one, she is.

I Googled the lifespan of a mosquito.  This thing apparently can live up to 100 days.  All it needs is a stable foodsource, and well, that’s me.  I’ve tried to go Elmer Fudd on it, but no luck.  It’s hiding well.  I feel like it’s studying my every move.  And it definitely know the layout of the house by now.  I have to face facts:  I need to outsmart it.  Damn.

I called my Mom and she told me to put out a dish with water and dishsoap.  I’m not sure what this is going to do.  Do they drink it and die?  Bathe?  I don’t know.

Anyway, I just need my roommate to come back from his out of town trip.  Once he’s back, hopefully the mosquito will turn on him.  And I have no doubt that he won’t rest until he kills it.  I, on the other hand, am ready to hit the sack.   So, hopefully the mosquito doesn’t feel like snacking tonight.

but if you’re keepiing score, Mosquito 4, Dave Q. 0.  But if I kill it tonight, it will be worth 5 points. :)

  • I bet the main reason the police keep people away from a plane crash is that they don't want anybody walking in and lying down in the crash stuff. Then, when somebody comes up, they act like they just woke up and go, "What was THAT?!"
