I am driving home on highway in City. Windows down. Tunes rocking. All of a sudden,

"Whap!" a second later "Whap!"

First the face then the arm. I got stung by a freakin BEE! I guess he bounced off my face to stab my arm.

Too ugly to sting in the face?

Me too. Driving home and a Hornet went in between my back and the back of the seat. Hit me about 3 times before I finally killed the sucker.

Ohh No. He got my face (cheek bone) but I guess it didn't take so he got a real jab in on my arm. Even then, I guess the wind from having the glass down pulled him out and the stinger too. Both ended up on the console in a freaky sort of slo-mo matrix fight scene.

Man. What an adrenaline rush! And dang what a welp!

Time to get revenge on the little buggers and steal their honey for mead.

Sorry, Gila, I was just kidding with ya. I didn't realize he got you in both the face and the arm. I shouldn't laugh at your misfortune.

The last time I got stung I was walking into my garage and a big ass hornet/djinn took a chunk out of the back of my head. The offending nest left the our plane of existence in an explosion that was part temper tantrum and part vengeful god. Well, a vengeful god that uses Daddy's 'driving words'. The worst attack in our family was when we asked our daughter to sweep out one of our outbuildings. She started with the big paper ball attached to the floor. Actually got it swept into the dust pan before the awful truth became evident.

I hate 'em. Yellow jackets even more. Had one in my truck last week, but managed to stop and get it out the window without getting stung.

Got nailed in the neck once while on the motorcycle. Maybe four square inches of skin exposed and zing!

Way back when I was a kid, I was flying down the hill to home on my bike. I was late so I was pumping hard and, swack, in the mouth flew a yellow jacket. Somehow I was able to get it spit out before I got stung. Funny thing is I can still remember the taste, very bitter. Maybe thats why I'm not overly fond of IPAs.
