My partner is an Entomologist. Ironically, I have an excruciating timidity around insects. We've come to rural Mississippi for Jacs' field research.
Jacs' piercings and tattoos and my “time traveler from Woodstock” getup, provoke gawking and jeering from the backwoods' residents. “Lesbos”, they sneer, but Jacs enthusiasm is unabated.
Today's mission: a Hog-Fest on Micky D's French Fries!
Jacs spotted them instantly. “Look, a Polyphemus Moth! The gorgeous green one is a Luna Moth. Fantastic!”
Then more came. Before we knew it, clouds of huge Moths engulfed the jeep.
“Jacs!” I screamed and screamed and screamed.
