Mosquitos love me. I mean they looooooovvvveeeeee me. If there is a tiny one in my room and I have even a sliver of skin exposed at night, that’s it!! I’m done for. I’ve been bit on my eyelids, inside my nose, my mouth! It ain’t pleasant. Plus I have to come to work looking like Quasimodo (Brie is fighting the same battle).
I try to wear bug repellent but it always gives me a headache in the morning from all of the fumes. One summer I even walked around with a this horribly unattractive clip-on fan that attaches to your belt loop like a beeper, but that didn’t really work either.
In a last attempt to beat these buggers, I bought a mosquito net. But it’s like, realllllyyyy????? I’m going to have a mosquito net in the middle of NYC???? I have screens on my windows of course but they squeeze their little butts right through. I haven’t put it up and it’s been sitting in my room for 2 weeks now. Does anyone have any better suggestions? Or should I just be THAT person who has a mosquito net in New York City? Oy.
