bee's knees

Yesterday, I was raking leaves in the front yard and a bee flew up my pant leg and stung me above the knee. Of course, I freaked out and went running in the house, tore off the jeans, cursing all the way. I cleaned the sting, put on some Neosporin, shook out the jeans and put them back on to go out and finish what I was doing. That little devil was still in the pants! More shaking and he was finally loose. Who knew raking leaves could be so dangerous!

How horrible! One time I reached into a suitcase that I had come off of a plane with, and was stung by a hornet that had traveled in the suitcase! It was awful! I'm so sorry! I adore your cute illustration, though!! Be careful raking your leaves!

Such a cute illustration for such a painful experience! I got stung by "something" once as a kid (still don't know what, but my mom dug the stinger out of my side), and I had some kind of reaction/infection that went horribly wrong. For that, I don't trust bees and neither should you! :)
