THE ORIGIN OF THE EGYPTIAN FLY

Alphabet Wednesday : F
There are a lot of flies here at the beach and billions in town. On the beach to protect the tourist from these annoying visitors they have put fly catchers a little everywhere in the plants with some special treats which the flies adore and therefore go inside and this is then the bitter end of a beach fly in Egypt. (don't send flowers !)
Some flies however manage to survive and play with the guests on the beach. So don't wonder if a handsome young man waves to you but in reality he just chases a fly away.
You wonder why so many people suffer Parkinson and shake arms and hands, but this too is only the work of loving flies.
Don't be surprised when you see people slapping themselves in their faces, it's not a gesture of masochism, it's only the Egyptian fly. You admire the fitness of some elderly people who suddenly are able to throw their legs in the air, all thanks to the fly who takes care of your daily fitness.
An Egyptian told me that flies are not of Egyptian origin ! They immigrated to Egypt probably in the luggage of an European archeologist and therefore nobody knows if the fly is English, German or Italian. Maybe two of them met during the trip to Egypt and started their love story which ended with some hundreds of fly babies.
The procreation worked so well in the sunshine and heat that today the country is full of flies. Flies fortunately are only bothering and nagging you but don't hurt like their competitors, the mosquitos.
Unfortunately flies are no racists and don't have any preferences for a nationality, skin or hair color and go on everybody's body parts. I too am a victim and feel sometimes like a cow in a stable.
I am sorry not to be able to show you a picture of an Egyptian fly, but they refused to pose for me !
