Eva, I don't know you well but I'm glad you don't hurt so much. Drift away -- it's summer and you need time to heal. And -- after three broken legs and three abdominal surgeries -- I have learned that you should FOLLOW THE DOCTOR'S ADVICE -- so don't lift nine-and-a-half-pounds in a week and a half! Confine yourself! You'll feel better sooner.
to the topic -- I haven't been bitten by a mosquito since I moved to the Northwest 15 years ago. Other people complain about them, and I'm just as female/perfumed/deodorized as anyone else, so I can't explain it. All I can do is tell you what I used to do in the Midwest -- when the smegger bites (thanks, deb) pinch the skin on both sides. It traps the "snout" and she (all the biters are shes) can't pull out. She will swell and burst. You will still have a mosquito bite, but it's exquisite revenge! (two Qs in one sentence! a record!)
