Misc. Remembrance:



Sometimetime around 1973, I was at a friend's in-ground swimming pool. There was a pair of swimming goggles sitting on the edge of the pool, so I put them on. I didn't know, however, that there was a bumble bee in it. All of a sudden I had a bumblebee in my face, so I naturally did what any other person would do:
I ran around screaming. With the goggles still on my face....
The damn bee stung me right between the eyes. To this day I have an aversion to bumble bees..

This just seems to be one of those memories that just stuck with me, for some reason...

Yikes! I would have FREAKED. I'm so glad you were stung between the eyes in stead of IN the eye!

What a terrible thing to happen. Glad it didn't damage your eyes.

Yeah well it still sucked just as the same. There is no great way to get stung by a bumblebee. Just sayin'.

I got stung right where my "cheek" meets my leg. This during gym class. The good thing is I didn't realize until a few minutes later (extra padding in that area I guess) so I didn't run around screaming in gym class. I'm sure it would have made the experience ten times worse/more amusing
