Hello?... um...

… testing, testing.  Is this thing on?  tap tap tap

Ok, in just a couple of weeks I’ll be done with Lila and taking another trip with lots and lots of pictures to be forthcoming.  I realize I’ve left you all hanging out a bit but well, um, there hasn’t been much to say really.  I’ve had lots of flashes in my mind about potential blogs but nothing really worth posting.

Take this story for example.  “Mosquito’s revenge”

I know I’ve said it before, but I think that mosquitoes are part of the curse.  I really don’t think there is any use for them much like viruses.  Sure, birds eat them, mosquitoes that is, and so do other things, but really, there’s lots of other bugs out there for them to eat.  They can’t really eat that many of them either because there are just way too many of the stupid things kicking about, or should I say, fluttering about.  I hate them I hate them I hate them.

The stupid things are worse than water when it comes to finding a hole and a way to get inside.  Sometimes I think my apartment has a sign that flashes, big juicy meal this way -> !

So it should come as no surprise to you at what I’m about to write.  Now, this story is not for the faint of heart and pregnant women probably shouldn’t read it either.  Since I don’t know any one that would fit either of these categories I think I can proceed with unabated audacity. :-)  (wait till you read what I’m writing.)

The other day I was taking care of business standing at a urinal, the full length model, you know, the kind that really allows for full coverage splash back, (which is rather annoying), but this isn’t about urinals, it’s about something worse.  Yes, worse!

As I was taking care of business, right there before me was a mosquito inside the urinal on the left side and within range.  Well, I went for it.  Any chance to kill those little bastards, (well, do they know their fathers!?) :-P is a chance I jump at; though, jumping at times like this is not advisable so don’t try it.

Well you can guess what happened next.  The stupid thing flew up out of the urinal and came straight for my face!  I was shocked, stunned, and getting more concerned with each passing nano second as it inched up and forward.  It’s not like I could do a whole lot about it either.  I was in mid (well, we’ll just say, form :-P) and there was nothing I could do.

I stood there thinking, “how ironic is this?!”  “The stupid mosquito’s ultimate revenge”, and yes, I even thought what a crazy blog this would make.

Well, our hero was not undone (I’m most thankful and happy to say!).  As it neared my mouth I quickly exhaled a big powerful gust of air and whoosh, the stupid thing was blown away.  To where it went or what its accursed little life adventured into next I will never know.  But, it hasn’t been back to the urinal :-), least wise not when I’ve been there.

So the score remains tied, 0-0.  I shall yet have my victory my dear Sancho Panza!  Our quest shall not be in vain.  By the way, has anyone seen any windmills as of late?  I didn’t think so! :-P
