It rhymes with mosquitoes.

1. This occurred yesterday.

2. I was indoors, at work, when I was assaulted by a fanged demon parasite the size of a dime.

***Artistic rendering. That is not my bare skin.

3. Needless to say, the rest of my day was consumed with distress, sadness, confusion, frustration, nausea, more sadness, and googling which diseases mosquitos can carry.

6. BEING CONSTANTLY BITTEN BY MOSQUITOES IS SOMETHING THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN IN CALIFORNIA (nor, I imagine, in Washington, Oregon, Arizona, etc… although I have never been). See this map that I created for evidence.

This is based on absolutely no fact, only observational evidence having been a resident of Georgia, DC, New York, and California.

7. In California, the air is too dry, and thus disgusting tropical/sub-tropical insects like mosquitos cannot survive.

8. So before you move to NYC/Boston/DC/wherever, remember that mosquitoes exist, no thrive, in all of those places and that they will make everything worse.

Ship me with mosquitos bc they absolutely love me
