When I was a kid, I was playing with my neighbor’s dog, Rocket. Maybe his name was Jet. In any case, he disturbed a bumblebee hive. Bumblebees, you see, sometimes nest underground. The dog smashed, the swarm swarmed, and I got stung very many times. It was not pleasant.
From there, my memory gets a little hazy, but I think I started asphyxiating. In any case, my parents followed the advice of whatever the vet said to do for Rocket or Jet and I survived. The experience did leave me a tad frightened of bees, but they serve a purpose—unlike geese or Caillou—so I’m generally pro-bee. Just from a distance and I definitely wouldn’t go this far.
