I am not talking about vampires who annoy me. (Really it was the girl character in the book that had me wanting to poke my eye out with a spoon.)
I am talking about mosquitos.
BIG ONES. They have stripes. And luggage.
I have lived here, in Houston, nearly my whole life and I have NEVER experienced the size or the multitude of mosquitoes as I have lately.
For the second time this week I tried to do Forced Family Fun in the form of a mile walk. The first time it was a half mile slapping sprint as soon as we realized this was no mild swarm of insects.
Today we didn't even make it that far.
Poor Tayte. A mosquito will fly across a Wal-mart parking lot and skip seven other perfectly juicy people to bite him. He is covered.
Shaye was so heart broken when I swatted a humming bird size one that was draining her dry from her big toe. I guess she thought I was hitting her. Poor girl.
So when we got home we had Forced Family Fun in the form of putting Benedryl cream on each other. Tayte got a whole tube to himself.
Enjoy your hopping today!!
