I’ve recently noticed a pack (flock? bevy?) of obese flies in my house. Their buzzing is quite loud. One greeted me at the door when I came in last night. I’m still not sure if I found it weird or comforting.
I’m not really into smooshing flies. I don’t even own a swatter. If they get bothersome, I say, “shoo, fly — don’t bother me” (someone should write a song — those are brilliant lyrics). The flies seem to listen to my request.
I think my house may be a refuge for obese flies. These flies wouldn’t fare well against a swatter, because they’re slower than the average fly.
Some people foster children or animals — I foster flies. I’m ok with this.
