Friday Five: Flies
Most country music artists hope that there’s a certain “buzz” about their career and that their initial songs “fly” up the country charts.
But, alas, that’s not the type of fly that we’re chatting about in this Friday Five. We’re talking about Musca Domestica and Coleoptera. If you just got lost, flash back to those hazy hormone-laden days of junior high to that biology class. Today, this is all about the everyday house fly and his long lost bug cousin, the firefly.
The former one’s a nasty little pest that manages to irritate during every single outdoor meal. And when he sneaks his way into a room with any florescent light or window, he’ll fly headlong into it convinced he’s found an exit. And again. And again. And again- driving one to certain insanity. The latter of the two–who is a beetle and not really a fly at all–is the golden child of the insect world. Unlike his housefly brethren, the firefly is the romantic lighted charmer that certainly makes him the envy of all the other bugs. He’s like Brad Pitt, but with a glow-in-the-dark butt.
Hopefully this topic doesn’t bug you too much as this Friday Five takes wing.
