Tempting fate - don't say it too soon!
July 18, 2009 4:20am CST
A few weeks ago the mosquitoes were doing their worst and despite the usual precautions they were having a feast on me. A friend posted me some benidryl anti itching products which are unavailabe here. Since they arrived I haven't needed to use them as not another bite in sight. As soon as I said this last night a mosquito zoomed in and bit me. How have you tempted fate by speaking too soon?

Mosquitoes like me and on the way from the airport to our accommodation in St Lucia they bit my legs all over. I bought really strong insect repellent. When I went to Kenya I had arm and leg bands covered in DEET. If I take an umbrella with me it won't rain. If I go out on a sunny day in a t-shirt and a cotton skirt or trousers it will rain and I won't have my umbrella with me. I told my son the bus will be here in a minute and then three wrong buses turn up in the next half an hour.

Hi maximax, tick on the umberella, tick on the t shirt. Can't possibly agree with the bus thing, no one over here would ever say the bus will be along in a minute, it will be along when it feels like it, usually half an hour either side of the scheduled time. And there's only two a day!
