I just needed to get this off my chest.
Check back next Wednesday for the promised book review and gushing.
But for now, adieu!

Aw, I always had a tender spot in my heart for bees. I look at is as… they’re so intent on protecting their hive that they’ll lay down their little lives in the hopes of distracting you away from their queen bee and honey trove. And it’s not their fault their only defense mechanism is their stinger. I mean, the rest of them is just this delicate roundish… thing with fragile wings. They’re like pollinating soldiers.
Anyway, the book Chalice didn’t help my bee love subside. The heroine is a beekeeper, and when the Master comes to visit, there’s this utterly adorable scene between them and a bee, and it’s really because of the bee that the scene is so cute… but she would agree with you that bees are the most illogical creatures ever. Well… hers were. Because they were doing very un-bee-like things. 😛
Plus, I absolutely love honey!! And I have no serious reaction to bee stings. I mean, it burns/stings like crazy but I don’t itch or swell beyond normal. But I totally understand the fear, even if it’s not instilled in me. I’m sorry you got stung, though!! That little guy paid the ultimate price… *sniffles* Sorry!! Focusing! I really am sorry you were stung! 😉

You say the bee is prepared to lay down its life for its hive and I say it didn’t need to sting me in the first place. 😉 I wasn’t close to any hives and I didn’t actually squash it either. I touched it yes, but I’d already felt the movement and I was moving my arm to see what was wrong just before it stung me.
I do know how much you love that book though. 🙂 I see bees in much the same way I see spiders – I have no problem with them if they don’t try to touch me. 😉 Honey is great, though!
My mum is like that too. She acts more like a mosquito bit her than a bee. Whereas me… my arm is still itchy and a bit swollen.

Just too funny. I like the bee’s thoughts…. I never thought of the sting being the result of panic. I always kinda thought they went through life mad at the world, just looking for reasons to attack. Cute with a sting of philosophy.

Yeah, my uninvited little hitch-hiker. Actually, I wanted to say “So this is how you repay me for the free ride?!” 😛
That’s a good description! I don’t trust the little bastards…

A hitchhiker, nice! I liked this cartoon a lot.
And I understand the dread-fear because I also have that as I’ve never (thank God) been stung.

Hey, nice to see you again! 😀
It’s no fun at all getting stung, but at least I know what will happen now!
