The Flies Have It

It's fly season. While having coffee Saturday morning, I thought the flies would drive me out of my mind. It was bad enough that they kept landing on my arms and legs, but they were constantly flying around my head and in my face.

San Geraldo, who has no shame, offered me his IKEA dish towel — the one he's known to regularly wear on his head to ward off flies, the sun, cold air, and unwanted distractions.

"I don't think so," I snorted. "But thanks just the same."

AN EXAMPLE OF SAN GERALDO'S "LOOK." NOT FOR ME...

Then a fly slammed right into my ear.

IT IS THE END OF THE WORLD AS I KNOW IT.

"Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives. And I decline."

  4. Hey, we have those same IKEA dish towels :) Now, they'll make me smile every time I use them.... though I will resist plopping them on my head. At this point LOL.

      We bought our first set in Sevlla. Then Jerry started wearing them on his head and I went and got entirely different dish towels so no one would think they were doing double duty!

  6. Echoing Jim's comment above, I'm sure you can purchase somewhere on the internet a cloth with a map of Palestine on it. Would be far less conspicuous. And if you add an authentic-looking touch of going around clutching a Koran you're sure to blend in nicely. (Glad to be of help!)

      I have thought of classing it up with some roping around the forehead, but no Koran or any holy book for me.

      No, next it will be brown leather shoes, white socks, and gray (too short) tuck-ankled sweat pants. He tried that once a long time ago and I sent him back in the house!
