As I sit here smacking at couch mosquitoes lurking around after the rain, I'm struck by this thought:
Maybe mosquito bites are itchy to make you scratch, and when you scratch, you scratch out the bad things the mosquito planted inside you. Because - think about it, if you were in the process of sucking a meal out of someone, would you alert them to the fact by making them smack right where you were sucking? Possibly killing you? The mosquito can't be that dumb, so there must be another explanation, and I think mine makes sense - nature put the itch there, the mosquito knows nothing about it, and if you scratch right away all the baddies will be destroyed.
Aren't you glad you read my blog today?
