In Tahiti I had 40 bites on my body at one time.
In China the bites blew up to silver dollar size.
This year, by going to Taiwan during the freezing cold rainy season, I thought, "At least there aren't any mosquitoes."
So last night I bunkered down on the floor bed of my aunt's unheated apartment (nothing like a Chinese bed to make you wake up with a numb butt).
I slept under:
padded tights + sleep pants
1 sweater over my legs
1 puffy winter coat over my upper body.
Nothing was exposed except my face.
And this morning I woke up with 3 big bug bites on that face.
Mom this morning: Bugs are like dirty old men - they always go after the young ones.
p.s. I haz the internetz! (Sorry, that's the last time I'll LOLcatz)
My second uncle loaned me and my mom his magic portable internet wand.
