Mosquito Magnet
Posted by Hilary on 6/25/2013 6:52:00 AM.
Summer is a pretty wonderful season. While we've been stuck inside for months, it's now the perfect time to get out there and get active, have picnics, and soak up the sun. But one thing that comes with the summertime...the dreadful arrival of mosquitoes! I am literally a mosquito magnet. I can be outside for less than 5 minutes and have maybe ten or twenty mosquito bites. And my mosquito bites aren't just little red spots. They swell up immediately and welt. It's awful. I'm pretty sure the devil sent mosquitoes specifically to spite me. Anyone have any helpful remedies to keep those pesky bugs away?


 

Zzzzzzzzzz

We all have our flaws, right?I'm filling in for Van Riggs all week long on the Kicker Morning Show, and I think it's about time I admit one of mine to you. I am a self diagnosed narcoleptic. I can literally fall asleep at the drop of a hat. I have no idea how or why this came about, but it's true. I am known for falling asleep on the phone, and riding in a vehicle instantly knocks me out. To some people, a nap might be 30-45 minutes, maybe even an hour. Naps to me are at least 2 hours. I've got to devote some serious time to the inside of my eyelids.  But don't worry, I won't fall asleep on the show. I've got plenty of coffee to prevent me for doing that! 
 

 

The Thundershirt : love it or leave it?

I gotta say, when I first heard about the Thundershirt...I laughed. But I have to admit, after scouring countless YouTube videos, it appears that it works! Our traffic manager here at the station, Alex is thinking about getting one for her in-law's dog to help with his separation anxiety. And as a owner of 3 dogs, I've been told before to give it a try. I've hesitated, but after watching this video, I think I should get one just for the laughs!
