A glimpse into the kinds of conversations I have with my husband.
Anne: If mosquitoes didn't have wings would bats eat other kinds of bugs?
Grant: If a canoe was rolling down a hill and lost a wheel how many pancakes would it take to cover a doghouse?
Anne: What? [laughing]
Grant: 13, because there are no bones in ice cream.
Anne: [laughing harder]
Grant: What the hell? Why are you asking about wingless mosquitoes?
Anne: [still laughing] I was just reading an article about people who are genetically altering female mosquitoes so they don't have wings.
Grant: Well, then they would just bite your toes.
Anne: [more laughing]
Grant: Or, they would do it tick-style and climb up into your hairy parts and bite you where it counts.
Anne: [tears, gasping for air] Maybe they should just let the poor little mosquitoes have wings.
