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.

Oh gosh! A hornet sting can be really nasty! Even more sympathy.


Bumble bees are pretty harmless and only sting if dead or really threatened

Hornets are just plain nasty!

Then maybe it was a hornet after all...Oh I don't know. It was big and yellow and black and it hurt me! Nasty insect. I'm glad I killed it. It deserved it (even if it only stung me after it was dead...).

Thanks! Mystery solved: it was a bumble bee after all. Of epic proportions.
