The plague I’m referring to is number 4 from Exodus:
“This is what the LORD says: Let my people go, so that they may worship me. If you do not let my people go, I will send swarms of flies upon you…”
So we don’t exactly have swarms of flies, but with the slightly warmer weather we are being afflicted with large numbers of really big, really fat, really lazy blowflies. They’re like the jumbo jets of the fly world, and most of them seem to have been smoking reefer, because they’re all noddin’ and chillin’ and kickin’ back as they slowly buzz around. One of them flew in to land on the back of my hand this afternoon, and just sat their placidly waiting to be swatted.
Has anybody else observed this, or do we just need to pay more attention to our personal hygiene and general cleanliness here at The Fortress.
