Zzzng! Zzzng! Zzzng!: A Yoruba Tale
In the days when all things came together to make the world as it is, when all the animals and elements looked for mates to marry, mosquito began her search for a mate. But everytime she approached a prospective mate proposing marriage — first Ear, then Arm, then Leg — she was cruelly rebuffed, until soon, she became bitter and angry and started to bite. To this day, she continues to bite, and buzzes around Head and Ear to remind them that she’s still there.
