Here I sit, trying to work on my computer...
A tiny tiny head-of-a pin sized gnat is flying around in front of my screen. He actually doesn't fly, not in a direct easy to hit line, this one jumps around erratically.
Have you ever tried to GET one of those things??
I have swatted... fast, I have clapped my hands thinking I was trapping it in the middle... and as if to mock me, it flies around right in front of where I just clapped!
It just flew by again and landed on my nose. That does it!
Now I'm stopping everything, on high alert... I dare it to come by again.
I am sitting as still as a statue, going to fool him this time.
He is nowhere to be found.
Maybe I got him during one of those claps.
He isn't here anymore...
Now I'm getting back to work.
It does make me wonder though, if his sisters and brothers are lurking.
It's now about 5 hours later, I'm back... and he just flew by! I KNOW it was him, I recognize his flight pattern.
The moral of this story...
Don't just swat at those pesky little irritating habits that buzz around and distract your attention... deal with them decisively, or they will be back, maybe even bringing their sisters and brothers...
