Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

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
