It's that time of year
The mosquitos are back. The experts predict an onslaught of mosquitos this summer, due to all the rain and flooding we had this spring. Here's a body map of my bites after a particularly bad, oppressively hot, sleepless night in a room in Philadelphia with an open window and no screen. I lost the battle. It's amazing how much damage such a small, weightless thing can inflict on a person. One bite is peculiarly satisfying to scratch - but 25 is enough to make you nuts.
