I was awakened by a loud, angry buzzing and opened my eyes to see Manasse chasing a big fat bumble-bee. I picked up a shoe (there's plenty of those lying around) and whacked it. I thought I'd killed it, but when I bent to pick it up and throw it in the bin, it obviously had some life left in it, and it stung me! I hadn't been stung since I was a child. I'd forgotten how much it hurts.

"They can hurt more than the live ones, you know" -- Bacall and Bogart, that same film where she tells him "You know how to whistle, doncha? You just put your lips together and blow"...but what's it called?

"To Have and Have Not". And I just realized I got the quote slightly wrong. It's "was you ever bit by a dead bee." Eh, close enough. :P

Yeah, close enough -- I never noticed the mistake, either. Besides, it makes more sense to ask whether you were ever stung than whether you were ever bit...bees don't bite, I don't think they even have teeth!
