they live where you live

Today it was a little less cold. Matter of fact, the day was pretty pleasant. However, the moderate weather turned out to be paradise for mosquitos. It seems as if the city belongs to them and we are just stopping by for a short visit. And soon we will be consumed by these blood sucking whistling needle headed creatures.

None of the insect killing tactics prove to be useful. Resistance is futile. There is only one way that is guaranteed to kill these little beasts. Use your hands. That’s right. Unless you don’t crush the insect between your palms, it will keep bugging you in sleep. So what if your neighbours think you are having mehfil-e-qawali at your home. Everything is fair in war. And that too war against the biggest enemy of mankind.

My blood is too precious. I am saving it for other important tasks, like if I have a fight with my girl friend’s brother, I am sure to shed some. There is no way I am gonna let these mosquitos enjoy the taste of it.

    Hahahahah. The mehfil-e-qawali term is SO true to define it!

    It’s times like this I wish I had one of those huge styrofoam hands they have for basketball games for killing the darn machars.

    They have invaded the city indeed. And the first attack starts at dusk. I had to fight a large formation at dusk. But I was ready. Mosquito repellant!

    you know what you should get? one of those electric racquets, where you capture the mosquito, electrocute it and then smile when you hear its blood go crackle pop crackle :D
