I’ve been chased out of my bed by a shitty mosquito.
It’s been buzzing around my head, threatening to fulfil its vampire instincts the minute I drop off.
I know where it’s planning to leave me with a great big spot. On my face. Which I will then, of course, have an allergic reaction to, resulting in me growing an extra head.
I’ve tried informing it that I really need my beauty sleep. My husband and I have a once in a lifetime date on Saturday night and I’m already starting to put him off with my red, shiny, dripping nose. My loud sneezes. And the hoarse throat that has been coming and going for the past week.
Begging has done me no good. The evil parasite just zoomed by my head some more.
So now I’m going with the ‘open the bedroom door and leave the hall light on’ plan. In the hope of tricking the merciless one into thinking there are even more bloodsucking opportunities out there. Somewhere over the rainbow. Or even, beyond that light.
Are mosquitoes even attracted to light?
Could just be moths…
