    You can't help it that you just taste better.

    2. And you will go insane, because while the mosquitoes will leave everyone else alone, they will snack on you like you're an ice cream sundae.

    3. No matter how much insect repellent you use, mosquitoes STILL go after you like crazy.

    4. Or you’ll end up buying weird products in hopes that the mosquitoes will leave you alone once and for all.

    5. All the bites on your arms and legs end up looking like some bizarre connect-the-dots.

    6. You've been bitten in places NO person should ever be bitten by a mosquito. INTIMATE PLACES.
