I love mosquitos.

Actually, I am lying. Hate them. But I suddenly feel a bit sorry for them because they are so despised as a species. I can’t think of a more exclusively hated species. My theory is that they are not evil enough to have admirers.

The species that are known by some as truly “evil”, such as sharks, snakes (every snake wants to get me btw), scorpions, and other killing things also have fans. Mosquitos… not so much. They are just infuriating and annoying, and do not tend to elicit fear. I don’t see “Mosquito Week” replacing Shark Week” anytime soon.

No one talks about the beauty of mosquitos, the cleverness in the fact that the ones that buzz aren’t the ones that bite, the beauty in their slow glide through the air. People only criticize.



  1. Hey! Sharks aren’t evil! They can’t help it, they’re just being sharks. Plus, they hardly ever nibble on people, and when they do, 99% of the time it’s a case of mistaken identity.

    Wasps, though… those are evil. Pure evil.
