An African tale explaining why mosquitos buzz in peoples ears. in this story a chain of evnts occured ending in the death of an owlet. this death caused the mother not to wake the sun making night very long. The one who started these events was the mosquito. The mosquito went into hiding so he would not recieve his punishment. Feeeling guilty the mosquito tries to talk to peolple asking if the animals are still mad. The end is a smack to the mosquito.I thought it was a funny explanation as to why moswuitos are so bothersome.
