The Only Good Mosquito is a Dead Mosquito

Monday, August 23, 2010

Stepped out of the shower this morning and started drying off, when out of the corner of my, I caught a blurry movement on the ceiling. I didn't have my glasses on and considering we have three furry cats in an apartment, I assumed it was cat hair floating in the air. I wrapped the towel around myself and reached for my glasses. Before they completely fogged up, I saw what it really was: a skeeter. How did it get into the bathroom, you ask? Well, the balcony doors are wide open when we're home and its not raining in order to allow the kitties a chance to get outside. They sometimes spend hours outside, sleeping in the sun. Naturally, a bug or two is going to find it's way into the apartment. Try not to imagine me flailing around the bathroom trying to kill this little bugger before he gets a chance to land and bite me while trying to keep my towel from falling. Although it wouldn't have mattered much, the door was closed, but I think I was concerned that he might find somewhere inappropriate to land and that would not have been pleasant.

I can't wait for cooler weather and these guys to disappear for another year. It shouldn't be too long now...the leaves are changing colour in the river valley already! I'll nab a picture tomorrow.
