Gnats!

We're having a gnat infestation at our office. Okay, it's not exactly an infestation. It's more like one gnat per person per office. About the time, I forget we're having a gnat problem, one flies right in my face causing me to go all spastic and cross-eyed.

I hate gnats. I always think they’re going to fly up my nose so I end up frantically batting them away like a crackhead having a slap fight with Satan.

Yeah, and the minute you kill one another one comes to life.

I could picture the flinging. Gnats are irritating!

And you say you miss New Orleans? Right now here in Nola we got your gnats, and we got your mosquitos, and in a couple of weeks we're expecting an infestation of stinging buck-moth caterpillars. I'm so looking forward to that one. Yikes. Good luck in your battle with the gnats, darlin' - I hate'em too.

So you get a gnat up your nose. Your adorable sister once got a bug in her ear. No not like "Put a bug in her ear" but a real bug. Member

Gnats suck. Gnats up the nose (or in the ear) really suck. On the SC/GA coast, they have something called "No-see-ums" or "flying teeth" and they really, really suck. Do you have those down there?

You know what sucks? Going fishing at night, and when you're riding back, you pull the trolling motor back up so it's still wet so the water keeps flinging on you.

Then you get back home and the 'water' is brown and black and all over your face.

Zina - I swear I only see one at a time but every time I kill one, there's another on the sidelines saying, "Put me in coach."

T - Hell, yeah. Driving me nuts.

Che - Don't forget the King of Bugs, Mr. Cockroach.

Babysis - A future blogpost! Thanks. Love you!!

Sophmom - Oh my God! Never heard of those. I'm going Google that right now. Flying teeth? How funny!

Dr. Sauce - Ugh! Squashed bugs on your face or mud?! Good times, good times.

Gnats? It sounds disgusting, but what is it?

Laurie said...

Hey Astrid - (For those of you who don't know, Astrid is from the Netherlands so they probably have gnats but call them something else.) Gnats are little tiny flying bugs that fly right in your face. Very annoying.

Vetta - Me, too, girl!

Astrid said...

Haha .. okay, check, and Astrid says "hi!" to the group and throws some tulips around. Gnats, now that is a cool word. I'll make it part of my vocabulary and bedazzle my friends! Haha ....

Hi, I found your blog today while surfing BlogExplosion. I really enjoyed reading your posts, but my favorite line so far was in the Gnats post... "I end up frantically batting them away like a crackhead having a slap fight with Satan."

Priceless! And very visual! Love it!

Come by my blog sometime if you like.

Astrid - Thanks for the tulips. Hope they don't attract gnats.

Dana - How nice! Thanks.
