The title caught my attention. A fun read with a good message.

Wow! I'll be shocked if this one isn't a winner.

A common writing tip is to not begin a piece with dialogue, yet you did it, and it worked brilliantly. I fell into the story immediately.

I loved the prose, the theme, the character and emotion.

It was a very important lesson, told in a very amusing story.

Loved, loved, loved it.

I love the way you think! This is terrific. I laughed out loud at ,"Chug, Chug,Chug." Every mosquito I see from now on will remind me of this darling story. :0)

This was great! I got halfway through the story before I realized this was about mosquitos. But as I continued to read your charming story, I quickly realized this wasn't ONLY about those pesky creatures. Wonderful writing!
I knew fairly early on that they were mosquitoes, but it didn't lessen my pleasure any. I had a great laugh then scratched the many bites on my body. I assume I must be one of the good tasting ones, because I feel like I'm eaten alive while my husband might get 1 or 2 bites all summer. Very original and written with a smile.
This is so funny. I just couldn't figure out what the little guys were and had a good laugh when I discovered they were pesky little mosquitoes!
Great imagination and great message.

Hehehe You had me laughing throughout.

I knew they were mosquitoes pretty quickly, but still enjoyed it.

LOVED the line about them being "girl drinks." :)

This is the most unique story I've read so far, it's a great take on this week's theme. It kept my attention from beginning to end. I agree, it should do well. Story-telling at its best.
