Mosquito Repellant

My seven-year-old son likes to play in the woods behind our house.  Unfortunately, mosquitos also like to play in the woods behind our house.

"Mommy, the mosquitos are really biting today," he said.  "My friend has so many bites, he's bleeding."

"That's terrible," I said.  "Your friend should wear some OFF mosquito repellant.  You should, too."

"I don't need OFF," he said.

"Why not?"

"I'm not getting bitten."

"Why not?"

"I do a little dance that keeps mosquitos away."  He demonstrated a little jig.  "See, it works great!"

Hmmm.  A mosquito jig.   Maybe I'll try that next time I go into the woods.
