hpm, LOL glad it wasn't worse for you. Kudos on finishing the job. I did too, but later.
I hope u quit swelling. Kinda weird, but I think I am getting more immune. Maybe the stings through the suit aren't as bad, but I haven't been swelling much at all. I am pretty sure that the stinger stayed in my skin, though. I can usually feel the venom pumping in until it is scraped out, so I think I am gettin' dat immunity.
AND..... "dumb rookie" is too lofty of a goal for me. LOL
