So apparently, mosquitoes may love me so much because I'm not stressed enough. Who would have known?? But that's the new theory, according to this article I found online in The Wall Street Journal: Finding Smells that Repel.
Anyone who knows me well will probably laugh at this suggestion. Although I'd consider myself somewhat relaxed these days, for a good majority of my life (like up until a little over a year ago) I was highly stressed with too much on my plate. And the mosquitoes loved me just as much back then.
And to make this research just a little bit crazier, they had volunteers stick their arms in boxes with mosquitoes to see how many bites they'd get. WHAAAAAAAT???? You'd have to pay me a lot of money to do that. A lot.
Yeah, I don't think I'd want to stick my arm in the box either! Unless thay were paying me alot of money. Then I could undergo the pain and discomfort for a little while - it would be gone in a few days, right?ReplyDelete
Haha I don't know. My mosquito bites usually itch horribly for a week or more. So it would definitely have to be a LOT of money. :)ReplyDelete
I'm known to scratch around the bite to bleeding...hate them. No way I'd do it :0ReplyDelete
