We used to camp out on Mustang Island a lot, and one time Mrs. Face and I went back in the dunes to, uh, commune with nature, and got caught in one of those mosquito hordes. It's pretty spooky to look down and see hundreds and hundreds of those suckers all over you. I was scratching my butt for weeks...
