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.

"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!
