Keep a Chicken Handy


So I guess I didn't get Lyme's Disease or Colorado Tick Fever....or at least that's what that fading bug bite is trying to convince me.  The swelling has finally subsided and no bull eye's target mark.  Interesting enough is that BBC has posted an article on how some people are really more attractive to mosquitoes than other people.  I can really relate to that.

Because for whatever reason, mosquitoes all flock to me when my hubby is friggin' standing beside me.  He can even sleep outside at night and wake up with no bug bites.  Whereas if there is one mosquito in the house, somehow she (I am not being sexist here.  For those who don't know, only females bite) will seek me out even if I'm hiding under a really thick duvet cover. 

But here's a catch apparently.  The articles says that if you keep chickens around, mosquitoes tend to avoid you.  I don't know how true is that, but I am willing to give it a try.  Tomorrow I shall announce to my hubby that we should get a pet chicken.

  1. The article may be right. Remind me again, what is your Chinese Zodiac sign?
