The other day I was out for a short ride and a bee-like creature dive bombed the inside of my left thigh, ricocheting and finally landing near some parties intimes on my right thigh. While he was there he stung me and I immediately knew that this was going to be a special one. Everything got hot nearly immediately and I imagined that I could feel the venom spreading around my leg (luckily it went downwards and not the opposite way).
The next day I had a red welt that covered half of my thigh and it was itchy and hot. So I decided to go for a ride.
This turned out to be a bad idea because either the heat or the friction of the lycra aggravated things and I got home in a much worse state than when I had left (other than cardiovascularly, I suppose..). That was at least 4 days ago now and I’m still waiting for the damn stuff to get out of my system.
I will count myself as lucky because I’ve had worse bee experiences and one of you recently had one caught in your bibs. I’ll leave you with a photo of a bee-sting bun, which I gotta say looks much more satisfying than the real thing.
