Mama, Mama, the DDT truck is here! The DDT truck is here!

My brother swears it is true, but I have no recollection of this. Whenever we had a mild winter here in the Midwest we could always expect heavy insect action in the spring and summer. In an effort to combat the mosquitoes, our town would send trucks out that would spray DDT on each block. My siblings and I loved DDT day. We would put on our bathing suits and chase behind the truck, playing in the DDT spray.

That might explain some of my later decisions in life, as well as that annoying tick.
