Sting in the Tail


I was stung by a bee yesterday. I've been stung by wasps many times, but this is the first time a bee has got me. It's nice to know I'm not allergic to bee stings, but was nicer not to have been stung. It got me on the back of the shoulder muscle that comes out of the neck after buzzing me for some time because I had the temerity to want to empty the skip on the back of the lawnmower two metres from its base.

Bees! They swarm in uninvited, set up home and before you know it they're everywhere. Yes, they do a lot of good work pollinating the flowers, and we're going to get a bumper crop of apples and pears as a result, but it's not a good idea to go near them. Now one of them has turned violent, we're wondering whether to destroy the whole nest to keep ourselves safe.

Wow, it's amazing how far you can push this bees=immigrants analogy.
