If you have ever visited Ocean Grove in Victoria, Australia, where I call home, you would wonder if the residents had all joined some bizarre German-esque knee slapping dance contest. I think I'd prefer that over the billions of mosquito's that plague our town every October. It's now an accepted practice to smack a friend in the head mid conversation if a mozzie decides to cut in. You've never seen anything funnier than watching a group of mum's at school drop-off, smack the living crap out of each other to fend these buggers off.
Of course, it gets to a stage where you draw a line in the sand and say "that's it, I've had enough...these mozzies are not going to ruin my outdoor fun". So throwing caution to the wind, you might risk it all like we did, and have a barbecue outside. In mozzie terms, this translates to FREE BLOOD DONATION. We tried our best, but they even managed to penetrate our mozzie net.
Oh, how I loath you Mozzie!
