amongst the vegetables and other woes from an English in Kentucky
Thursday, August 16, 2012
I have access to the internet, and sometimes I get a
presumptuous Email from someone I have never met, nor ever want to. Almost
always the Email is an attempt to persuade me that there's a burden upon
me to act quickly or else I miss an opportunity to possess this or that valuable
artifact, or contraption, or chance to win a reduced rate aboard a plague
infested, child friendly cruise ship, or hotel with a swimming pool.
Which is why I mostly sneer, but when it comes to
the issue of Mole and Fruit Fly slaughtering I am easily tempted.
The "Pear shaped Fruit Fly Trap: $19.95," I am told, is "attractive,
effective and discreet." As it happens I have seen the "Pear shaped Fruit Fly
Trap." Held it in my hands. It is neither discreet or attractive,
and I strongly suspect it is also ineffective. But who knows.
