This time, however, I came prepared. I bought a repellent at WallyWorld that was made right here in `Bama. (Should have known... bah.) For some reason I picked the one without a sprayer under the cap, so before fishing I took the top off and slathered the "please-don't-bite-me" juice all over.
So why do mosquitoes bite me? Well, other than this article pointing out that "I just have the wrong blood type" I have another suggestion. It's a conspiracy.
Mosquito: "Hey fishy, fishy!"
Fish: "Yes?" "Blubb"
M: "Know that tasty type O that comes around here sometimes to try to catch you?"
F: "Yeah, bluuubbb, I hate that."
M: "Well, she does put you back in the lake after she catches you- but doesn't it make you frustrated when you think you are getting a meal but its in fact a lure?"
F: "Yes! Bluubbubub. That ticks me off!"
M: "Want to get back at her?"
M: "Well, keep biting on her line- since she loves catching you so much. Then I will come in and me `n my buddies will have a tasty feast every time she comes- therefore making her life miserable and scratchy. We BOTH win!"
F: "I love it! It's so evil it just might work!!"
Well know what? GAME ON. I'm not intimidated by your evil plans. Ha.
