Truth song: I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, U2
By: Ada Eez, an Aedes mosquito
Hey Aedes Ladies and other mosquito-gals!
It’s #NationalFlirtingWeek and it’s no secret that “I have scaled [your] city walls … only to be with you.”
That’s right, “I still haven’t found what I’m looking for” and since I only have a few days in this lifetime, why waste my time with the wrong male? My advice, make a checklist!
Does your male have the following qualities for an ardent match?
[ ] How fuzzy are those antennae? If he’s down a few hairs, he might be past his “sell-by-date!” Pass!
[ ] Does he have black and white stripes? – if he isn’t absolutely perfect, tell him to buzz off!
[ ] Check out his whine! If it sounds off, he may not be the right match for you!
[ ] Does he have good taste in blood-meal spots? If not, this is a deal breaker – Ada gotta eat!
Remember Aedes Ladies, if it’s “warm in the night, [and you’re] cold as a stone,” you may be the one that he’s looking for …
