Every night when I take Jenny out to go to the bathroom for the last time, I play a little game where I try to kill as many mosquitoes attracted to the porchlight as I can. I may just be weeding out the dumb ones before they have a chance to breed, but it’s a risk I’m willing to take.

Every once in a while, one of them leaves a red splotch on the wall. Then I know I’ve had revenge.

Tonight one left a green splotch on the wall. What does that mean? I think it means I have Vulcans for neighbors.
