critical mass

I’ve just reached critical mass with my mosquito bites. That’s it, I’ve had enough. My feet are just two red lumpy appendages that itch and burn. I’ve even been bitten on the soles. I’m totally fed up with the staccato slapping of my body, the blur of smashed mosquitoes and that smoky ash residue they leave when swiped. I’m over the smears of blood. I wish I had socks. I wish I had some incense. I wish they would just curl up and die somewhere far from me. I’ve been munching raw garlic, eating ginger and chili and still they bite me, what gives? I’ve put my magic oil on to sooth the itching and it’s not working.
