I find that many of my observations are on humans. They are pretty interesting.
It is summer where I am, though this page is snowing, and mosquitos are plentiful. With my faithful plastic food-cover I have nothing to fear, but humans feel differently. Here is a quote from one of the humans in my household: “Gherouohere!” Translation: get out of here. This is the said human’s favourite thing to say to mosquitos. Below is how an encounter usually goes:
Mozzie approaches human quietly before making sudden noise in ear.
Human: Oh – mozzie! Gherouohere!
Mozzie: Bzzz pause bzzz.
Human’s temper rises. Human waves hand near ear.
Human: Gherouohere! Stupid things. Come and bzz right in your ear, you know. Can’t stand it.
Mozzie bzzzes a bit more. Human gets crosser and tries to clap hands on mozzie.
Human: Missed him! Where is he?
Mozzie sneaks off. Human is unable to locate mozzie for further attempt.
Human: This is one thing I hate about summer. Mozzies everywhere! I’m going to Europe.
Human doesn’t but threatens to regularly over the summer.
I might consider writing an Act Two.
