This is not my week.

So: When I thought things couldn't get any worse. I got STUNG AGAIN. But this time I was minding my own business, toodling along on my bike, when WHAM! A something (with a stinger attached) runs into me. And was is on my hand, like last time, you ask? were I to be so lucky:

IT WAS ON MY EFFING NECK. Yes. ON MY NECK.

Did you see the pictures (below) of what happened to my hand?! Good god, I can't even begin to imagine what my neck will look like in 24 hours.

I'm really sorry for the bad language, usually I'm not like this. But you try riding 35 miles, wondering when your neck is going to swell up, cut off your air circulation and then cause you to fall off your bike and die... it has the effect of putting one in a rather sour mood.

  1. NO!!! I hope you don't swell, at least you already have benedryl, right? I think you are super talented in the sting department like me. I managed to get stung in my armpit once, that wasn't any fun.

  2. I think maybe God is trying to tell you something. ;)

  3. I'm so sorry - that's the worst!! I hope you recover from all bee stings soon! Neil is terribly allergic to bees and has to carry an epi-pen in the summertime. If he gets stung he has to plunge the needle into his leg. Not fun. It hasn't happened yet (fingers crossed). One time I was clapping my hands and I managed to catch a bee in between them and got stung. :(

  4. I agree with the first comment - be sure to keep Benadryl with you! And Sting-eze will help, too, if you're away from home.

    How's your neck?

  5. Yikes, so sorry to read about this. Probably the universe's way of telling you that you should be driving a Hummer instead of cycling. (Kidding!) Hang in there.
