    Mayflies tend to take things one day at a time.

    They don’t live long enough to get out of shape.

    Most of their lives are spent under ground. In some cases for years then a brief mating time above. Cicadas are that way. When they come out and shed their skin they have wings but no mouths.

    So the larvae spend years underground, playing video games and watching TV and gorging on pizza and potato chips … then emerge too fat to fly!

    Mayflies are wispy little creatures with thin curved bodies that cover the areas around ponds in late spring. The wind blows them around and they get onto everything. They are ephemeral, just our comments are in GoComics.

    Maylies pupate under water as nymphs, cicades underground, yes – as naiads.

    If mayflies lived longer they’d be ‘june’ bugs.

    Mayflies live their lives like there’s no tomorrow…

    A little hard to get buff under a exoskeleton.
