I got stung by a honey bee yesterday. In February.
I was talking with two other parents at the playground after kindergarten. They were moms.
A honey bee flew up and buzzed my face. Then it dropped into my collar.
I fell off the curb and fished inside my shirt to extract the bee, gently.
Not gently enough. It stung me on the neck.
I chucked the bee from my collar, onto the grass. The moms looked at it.
One stung, one dead.
What was the bee doing? Was it out from the hive on a pee-break, felt cold, and sought refuge?
