It’s that time of year again You can’t help but hear the relentless buzzing of mozzies all day long. It’s inescapable, annoyingly constant, yet there is a semi-hypnotic rhythm to it. But that’s only if you’re inside or far enough away. Outdoors or close up the noise is all-penetrating. Glad they’re only here for four days.
Yesterday and today my colleagues and I endured this monotony as a background hum in our office while the mozzies did their thing, not 2 kilometres away. And it will be worse on the weekend, especially on Sunday when they’ll be going at full pelt, no holding back. The little buggers will be twice as loud. Maybe louder.
Of course, I’m talking about the Melbourne F1 Grand Prix. A swarm of mosquitoes is what they sound like to me. But some people like them. The noise, the adrenalin, the speed, the crashes, the cars, the grid girls, the music, the celebrities, the action, the drama, excitement. It’s fantastic if you’ve got the interest and the money to go.
If you’re heading down to Albert Park this weekend have a great time and enjoy the race! If you get offered ear plugs, take them!
