and this Bee flew out of the hive, hit me between the eyes and stung me instantly. It happened so quickly that I didn't even have time to blink.

The kids are saying I look like ET now.

    Happened to my now eleven year old son almost two years ago while he was sitting next to me.  Same thing, too fast to stop, but boy was he fast scrapping out the stinger.  No E.T. thing just a zit.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

Don't know where you were sitting, but sit to the side.
Most times they go strait out the front then turn a few yds out.

Yeah, I was sitting in front, but back a little bit, I must not have been there for her other flights and she was not paying attention.

Sheesh, Women Fliers.

Ouch!!
Buzzbee jr took a hit below the eye two weeks ago. Tried the penny over the sting and ice for about twenty minutes,two benadryl tabs and had very little reaction! He got lucky,or the penny thing may have actually helped.

the penny thing has been discused thouroughly and...i think we'll have to send a request to the mythbusters grin

ugh...i got about..5 stings in the last month and all were either nose or under the eye. combined the heated pointy thing and plantain and got reaction for maybe 30 minutes. i would recommend it to everyone.
