Love is in the Air
In Texas we are being inundated with a swarm of these "love bugs" that are driven to reproduce. In case you've never had the pleasure of encountering these insects, you aren't missing anything. It was so bad the other day here that they were splatting against my windshield like it was raining. The worst part about the horrible things is that they are filled with some sort of glue-like substance that takes the paint off of your car if you don't clean them off quickly after they splat. My car currently looks like it has a black peppered mustache. I have no love for these nasty little things, whose name I say with disdain for our culture's confusion between sex and love which gave these evil little bugs their name!
