    Just About a Month Ago..

    I was swimming in my grandparent's pool and wanted to get out and therefore my hand was outside that pool. They have a virginia creeper nearby the pool, and bees love that plant. So I get my hand out, and right onto a bee :/  The stinger was still in my hand so I took it out...

    The Last Time I Got Stung

    The last stinging occurred just a few years ago. I was self employed at the time doing cleaning/maintenance and renos for a 4 building appartment complex. The main boss was visiting at the time we got a shipment of bathroom vanities. While unloading them and taking them into one...

    Not to Bee, If You Don't Mind

    The last time I was stung by a bee it puffed up like a cream bun and stayed that way for weeks and itched for months.  Bees are fine... bee stings not so much. It's not the bee's fault.. I was the one who stepped on it.

    As a Child

    As a child I use to run around, and I've stepped on I don't know how many bees. It makes me sad to know now that they died in my doing so. It's terrible. But at the time I screamed in agony because it hurt so bad, and I was so angry that the bee stung me. Even though it...

    One time, I was using my push mower,

    and I accidentally went over a yellow jacket nest that was underground. I got chased all the way inside my house and into my shower where I turned the water on to protect myself. I still have scars from where I was stung. I probably looked liked some cartoon character running...

    I provoked one on purpose to know how it felt. I was surprised cause everyone always says it hurts like crap but it didn`t, just sting a little.

    Stung On Horseback

    The first time I was ever stung by a bee I was at camp, horseback riding.  Unfortunately for us most of the horses got stung too.  We were riding in a line with one wrangler leading us in the front, and another wrangler riding in the back to make sure no one fell...

    Seven Times

    In a just one non-separate occasion. I was 5 years old and was playing with a bunch of empty soda cans my friend had in his backyard (come to think of it now I can't remember where they were from or what were they for, I just know I kicked them around and shook them in my hands...

    I was at a church picnic

    when I was about 13 years old and was stung by one of those tiny bees. We call them sweat bees here in the South. Little jerk got me right on the elbow.

    I'm Allergic To These Bitchess

    And the last time I got stung I almost died D: JUST KIDDING! My arm just got really swollen and blood wasn't  flowing through it at all o.o AND then my doc said if I get stung in my throat I will die within five minutes. YIKES. So as is obvious, I stay away from bees now.

    Nice Ride In the Country...

    well, it was...A big ol' bumblebee flew in the window, my son batted it away from him, and it landed on my ''able'' arm...It hurt and I could feel the venom going up my arm. I couldn't shake it off, and couldn't use my ''bad'' arm to get it off. The road was narrow and wind-y, so...

    Double Whammy

    Coffee shops loaded with glaze covered doughnuts in the middle of summer time is like human's gift to bees- and the whole hive knows. Move over coffee workers, this is bee territory now. Safe- not really but the owners weren't doing anything for the cause.Clocking in for my shift...

    I Loved Bugs

    I enjoyed collecting all sorts of bugs when I was a child. Especially cicadas, ants, and caterpillars. One summer afternoon, I thought it would be a good idea to collect some of the bees that were flying around in my cousin's backyard. I must have collected two or three before...

    No Laughing Matter

    The first time I ever got stung was by a harmless bumble bee at the age of 7. It was summertime and I was always walking around barefoot. I ended up going into the garage to be with me dad. I saw a bumble bee laying on the floor barely moving. I thought he was dying and proceeded...

    Painting and Playing

    I love to paint ceramic figurines and I was getting cooped up inside so I moved my materials to the patio outside my studio. Everything was wonderful, I was sitting in the warm sun, sees were buzzing by but I didn't bother them and they didn't bother me. They were having sex with...

    I only have one memory of being stung.

    I was somewhere between 4-6 years old and I was at a fair or amusement park. I was sitting on one of the benches instead of the horses on the merry-go-round. I put my hand up in the air and a bee came out of nowhere, landed on my hand and stung me between the stretch of skin...
