I wasn't going to answer the topic of bees, but I guess I can't help myself. I am deathly afraid of bees. They are the ONE thing that just scares the %#$* out of me. But, I've never been stung. I have seen others, and that scares me enough.
Once, we were at a relative's house picking raspberries, and walked around the other side of the fence. My dad was in the lead, then a brother, then a sister and me, about 15-20 feet behind each of us. Suddenly, bro starts screaming, and Dad turns around. Bro is standing in a pile of decomposing weeds, and is being attacked by bees. Turns out, they're the kind that don't lose their stingers, they just keep stinging. Dad picks up bro and carries him a away from the pile while he starts slapping the bees to kill them. Sis and I stand there watching and screaming. When the incident was over, bro had ~100 stings all over his arms, legs and torso, and so did Dad.
One sister is allergic, and has been stung several times. Her reaction has gotten worse every time, and if she gets stung again, she'll probably have to start carrying an epi-pen.
My closest bee experience was swimming. Indoor pool, diving board. As I was getting ready to jump, a bees flies around me, and I freak out. I end up falling off the board, and was just inches away from hitting my head on the edge of the pool. The lifeguard almost jumped in thinking I HAD hit my head. At the time, I was about 12/13 years old (don't know for sure).
So, I've never been stung, but when a bee has flown in the house, I'll leave until hubby gets it out. I try not to react, but I can't help it. I have a physical reaction every time.
Knock knock jokes. Personally, I think most of them are pretty stupid, but when my son was little, he had a favorite.
Police let me in, it's freezing out here.
