Bite me gently
It's warmer at last! There is a whole host of May holidays ahead, and if you don’t traditionally drove off to some warm country, then on May Day you’ll choose for sure. Do not relax much. Rather, relax on health, but do not forget that with you the sun pulled and all sorts of animals - there are various spider bugs, and mosquitoes. Well, and less harmless creatures - snakes, for example. Alas, this is a fact - with May heat the risk of being bitten by some reptile increases in proportion to the amount of clothing removed. We clarify - a non-harmful buzzing insect may well turn out to be a reptile, but also a friend who went through a keener-kebab and decided to demonstrate how cool Brad Pitt was in the film “Interview with the Vampire”. Or even a friend, impressed by your biceps, caressed by the May sun, and did not calculate the strength of their teeth. In this case, of course, the situation will be very piquant ... But more about that another time. And now it will not be superfluous to read, and adopt a memo that we have compiled specifically for the opening season of kebabs.
