Mosquito Bat

Peering closely, I sought to quickly skim through the online latest news …

True to form, I am a stickler for keeping up with the latest happening news…

Given this internet age and its borderless media reach, there’s always something…

So much to read, so much to keep up to date, just so one’ll be a better man for reading…

 

Then it happened, even as I was about to scroll the displayed page through the mouse button..

There came a familiar high pitched whine, softly at first but intensifying as its source approaches…

Christ! A blasted mosquito, high tailing in my direction, to my right pinky ear, to be precise…

I froze all motion, rolled and strained my eyeball to squint out of the corner of my right eye…

 

I saw, at the periphery of my field of vision, the fast approaching obnoxious blood sucker…

Silvery wings furiously beating as it made a bee line to my ear, a beacon for its bloody dinner…

Cautiously, yet sparing no delay, I reached out for my trusty rechargeable electric mosquito bat…

The offending insect was just about to land, circling in ever tightening circles as I got hold of my bat…

 

Bat upraised in hand, I did a quick head swivel , the dastardly insect was now plain in my sight …

Ah ha, now you are my victim, you stupid little insect! I gloated inwardly as I eyeballed the insect..

Dinner lost, the sudden shift in air movement must have warned this bloodthirsty sucker…

There was a quick change in its flight pattern, it tried to fly off, tried to flee from danger …

 

Here, eat this, you bloody miserable ungodly insect! Unhurriedly, almost leisurely, I waved my bat…

Right across the flying path of the fleeing little insect, there was no escape for such was its fate…

A sharp crackle and a quick spark of light, my poor mosquito was no more, no longer in sight…

A plume of whitish smoke, an acrid smell of burnt organic material, yup it is no more alright…

 

Mentally, I blew air across the end of my smoking gun barrel like any swashbuckling vigilante..

Gee, what a lethal combination, me and this rechargeable electric mosquito bat each day…

Got to get a spare, just in case, like my old man used to say, get ready for a rainy day…

An electric mosquito bat, it matters not rechargeable or not, it is a must- have gadget to date..
