Mosquitoes are the type of creature that I imagine no one likes – especially if you happen to be one of the folks that mosquitoes find irresistible. I am one of those folks, and to add insult to injury I have no self-control when it comes to scratching. And I mean – NO SELF CONTROL.
Scratching is problematic as it makes the bites look an awful lot worse and only provides temporary relief. I try and put the no itch cream on when I have it handy, but if it wears off once I am out and about I look like a dog with a flea infestation – scratching here, there, and everywhere frantically. It is not attractive.
But I am here to tell you that there are levels of unattractiveness my friends. Evidencing a lack of self-control while you scratch off the top three layers of skin on your arm is one thing, but all body parts are not equal. I say this because the other day while bending over in my garden trying to extract some of the pesky weeds, I had my fanny perched in the air and a couple of mosquitoes (or one incredibly hungry one) saw that moment as a full meal deal waiting to happen. I walked away with two mosquito bites on my butt. Sure you can joke – I know it is ripe for comments – but note that what is not funny is seeing a woman in the new forty vigorously scratching her fanny. And note, it is not attractive.
So, I am just saying – this is my current state West Fargo, perhaps you should think about spraying sooner rather than later. If not then know what you may encounter – you have been warned. There are things you cannot un-see you know – scarring things – things that could ruin your entire summer. Spray soon – spray often. 😉
