Note to self, it's probably not a good idea to get home from the gym all stinky and sweaty at 8 p.m. and try to open a hive up to check my super progress.  Garnered several stings from that little stroke of genius including one on my lip.  First time for the lip and I must say, it stunk!  My bees didn't like my foul odor as much as my kids didn't! huh

They don't seem to like odor, aftershave, and other unbee smells, and I don't think they like beeing bothered after dark either.  The lip, and eye lids do seem to swell better that other places.

Luckily, no swelling at all.  I was quite surprised.  Just a dumb move.
