Sting Like a Bee

This morning I had a very painful experience.

See...Sean and I had a nice breakfast at the chow hall. Oh how I love chow hall breakfasts..... Anyway, we get in the car and I settle myself in the seat. As soon as I do I feel an intense pain at my lower back as if I'm being bitten. I flop around screaming that something is biting me and Sean's staring at me like I'm crazy. I lean up enough that he can see it's a honeybee that's been stinging me.



Talk about PAINFUL! My back still hurts and that was over 5 hours ago. I think one reason it's so bad is because it stung me right at the base of my spine. I took some Benadryl to combat the swelling and I made Sean double check to see if the stinger was out, but no relief from the pain.

In other news, I asked a volunteer to bring her camera to the USO event the other day, as I had forgotten mine. In the process of taking pictures with hers, I dropped it and broke it. Of course I had to offer to replace the camera. It was my fault that it's broken and I would want someone to offer to fix mine if a similiar situation happened. I'm just glad it was a cheaper camera and not a super expensive one. I'd hate to be out more money then I already am.

Guess this is going to be one of those accident-prone weeks.

Thank you so much and best wishes

Oh my gosh, I've never been stung by anything before but I'm terrified of it! Sorry about you breaking someone's camera. A girlfriend of mine dropped my point and shoot with the lens out and broke it. She DIDN'T offer to pay for the repair.

That stinks! Sorry about the camera and the bee sting. Sounds like a perfect excuse for a margarita to me. ;-)

I was stung by a bee on the underside of my foot when I was five. I still haven't gotten over it.

Wow, talk about Murphy's Law! I hope you heal soon, I've never been really stung, but once when I was a kid a bumblebee (different than a honeybee, apparently) was resting in my swimsuit cover while I was swimming. I go to put it on and the thing freaks out and tries to fly out, scraping up my back in the process. It was awful!

Teresa said...

Eeek! I hope your back feels better soon. Bees suck :(

That was nice of you to offer to replace it since a lot of people just arent like that anymore. Im glad it didnt put you out too much :)

Chow hall breakfasts are the awesomest!! I love the omelets. We ate there Sunday morning and I'll be eating dinner there a lot this week. You just can't beat it for $4.25 per person.

Ow ow ow ow ow!!! on the bee sting! At least Sean was with you. That would have been even worse without someone to help. I hope it feels better soon.

I HATE BEE's! They are so lame, and the sting you at the worse part of your body everytime! I hope you feel better soon!

Abbie said...

OUCH!!! Hope it starts to feel better soon! I've never been stung by a bee...only wasps.

That sucks about the camera:(

MG said...

Oh my goodness, that sounds painful! I'm petrified of being stung by anything..which basically has me running away from anything like a little kid when anything buzzes my way. Hopefully it will start to feel better soon. I heard somewhere that you can make a paste of baking soda to help it feel better, but I have no idea if it works!

Sarah Ann said...

Ouch! Talk about unlucky! I hope your week gets better tomorrow!

Nikkilooch said...

Yikes! I hope you feel better soon.

Aw dang! Do you guys have a lot of those flying around right now? I see them everywhere and I'm afraid of this very thing. Boo about the camera too, but glad it wasn't like yours!

Jon and Steph said...

You poor thing! They're everywhere right now. What's the deal with bee's in Europe? Hope it starts feeling better soon.

And thank goodness that camera wasn't super expensive. Don't feel bad, that is so something I would do. I can be a little accident prone!

J.L.S. said...

Oh man that stinks! I hate being stung! Especially the times when you don't see it coming! I hope it starts feeling better soon!

Hannah Noel said...

OW!!!! I hate getting stung. Poor thing!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Aw, I'm sorry that happened. I'm glad it wasn't expensive! Sorry about getting stung!
