Okay, you win
I can take stings at the hives fine--I'm mentally tough and prepared for them. But, Wed, while selling at our farmer's market a honeybee was all over me. You know what I mean. I had on some beeswax body balm to soothe my blackberry-picking wounds, so maybe that was it. Anyway, when I went to cross my leg I bumped her and she stung.
Now that one really hurt. I think it was the mental unreadiness to be stung! And it gave me a little more empathy towards people who are wussy about stings
