Kissing Bug

Kissing Bug

Meet this little shit. The Kissing Bug should be renamed non-consensual sinister murdery biter. Admittedly less catchy. He drives very slowly on dual carriageways half in both lanes and squeezes all the soft fruit in supermarkets. He also is attracted by your breath while you sleep, lands by your mouth and bites you and drinks your blood. If you are lucky you wake up a bit itchy. If you are unlucky you can enjoy symptoms as varied as swollen glands, fatigue, heart disease and failure, anyphylactic shock or an enlarged oesophegus or colon. He does that weird thing of making his tongue into a funnel when he coughs so it all goes on you. Probably into your sleeping mouth. The little creep.
