37 and Counting


In the last 3 hours I’ve killed 37 mosquitoes in my bedroom – this isn’t an exaggeration or rough guess, I’m a bit obsessive when it comes to counting (so suspend guffaws or disbelief). It rained today – the first rainfall in ages (perhaps explaining the mosquito bloom). Under siege, compulsively swatting – I need help!

If I had scorpions, Lavender on the windowsill would keep them at bay. Sliced cucumber keep wasps at a polite distance -mosquitoes lack any hint of propriety, they just keep coming, and coming, and coming…..
