I’ve heard all kinds of suggestions throughout the years … that they don’t like smokers (false!), that you should eat vitamin B (false!). Maybe they like my blood type (B+)! Gerry and I took a short walk through some woods today and I came out with at least five bites. I even saw one sitting on my camera lens trying to bite IT! Pffft… Gerry sounded surprised .. ‘Oh, were there mosquitoes … I don’t think so!’ but oh, were they real.
Nowadays, I carry some sort of pen in my purse, it’s Benadryl and it actually works. It stops the itching and the bites don’t seem to turn out as big and painful as they used to, so that’s a good thing, but I’m still intrigued … what it is that I have but many others don’t?!
