From cats to mosquitoes
Apparently, there are no mosquitoes in skid’s city, because oh boy is it an issue. Actually, it’s an issue every year when she’s here.
Yes, we live in the south. Yes, bugs are a problem in the summertime, but they’re not nonexistent where skid lives. We know this because we used to live there too.
Last night, skid was mouthing something to MIL in our kitchen, in an attempt to keep it on the down-low that she was getting bit (walking from the car into our home, I assume?) and needed mosquito bite medicine pronto.
I have some, but didn’t offer it, because screw her and screw MIL for even standing there, entertaining skid’s special treatment.
While I’m aware this is an issue, for every human being on earth, especially in the south, just what is this behavior from skid? As in - it’s always something. ALWAYS. And as much as I hate referring to someone as a “snowflake,” skid is totally a snowflake. If it’s not the cats that reside in our home - it’s the bugs outside, you know, in the humid south.
Is it just straight up attention seeking? I know that skid is high maintenance, but is this normal 12-year-old girl behavior? Is she testing the attentiveness and loyalty to her from those around her?
