Question #1: What's more annoying?
MOSQUITOES OR FLIES?
On one hand, mosquitoes are truly quite dangerous: They carry diseases, they cause us pain, and they make that really obnoxious, high-pitched sound. In addition, they can't just bite and move on -- they have to set up camp on your arm (leg, knee, forehead...); act as if they're replenishing their stores for a long, hard winter; and persist until you have no other choice but to swat them (and yourself), which leaves an ugly red bump on your skin (or a welt, if you're allergic like me).
On the other hand, flies -- OMG. I don't care if you have a 10,000 square-foot house; the fly must buzz within a one-inch radius of your ear. And I don't know if flies ingest caffeine (or do crack?), but they're jittery and hyper because they can't stay still. Honestly, if they would just perch in the corner and mind their own business...but no, they have to mess with you and mess with you -- buzz and buzz -- all while zipping around your face in some random, drunken stupor until you're borderline homicidal. It's embarrassing, really. To be pushed to the brink of insanity by an itty-bitty bug.
All things considered, I'm going with FLIES!
(But be sure and register your vote or post your own nonsensical question. Who knows? I might just run with it :-)).
And now, it's time to return to my day job: writing Dark Fantasy Fiction & Gothic Romance!
Please tune in next week for another utterly-mindless, nonsensical question!
Disclaimer: I really am a thoughtful, contemplative, fairly educated person. :-) I have a BA in Psychology and an MA in Nonprofit Management, and I write a wicked, dark, edgy, action-packed story...but I just don't have time to blog. Oh, and I will interrupt this mindless nonsense (from time to time) to post about new releases, upcoming books, videos, contests, or other various teasers...just so you know. :-)
