It occurred to us today that this is Chicago summer cicada invasion year. Kathy pointed out this useful fact:

If a cicada lands on you, it is only because it finds you to be a convenient place to land — unless you happen to be using a lawnmower or weed-whacker, in which case it might be attracted by the sound!”

Great, I’m really looking forward to a whole month of 2″ long crunchy insects trying to mate with my scooter.
