March 02 | Bzzzz
When Melissa was really young she was stung by a bee in her ear. It happened during the summer right as she was walking in the downstairs door and she screamed bloody murder for probably a full twenty minutes.

Ever since that first sting, bees scared her tremendously.

The lower part of the playhouse - the section fully enclosed with four sunflower windows - always seemed to be home for the largest bee hive in all of creation.

Whenever she saw a hive she would run screaming back to the house to have Mom dispose of it. Even if the hive was empty and it was the middle of winter, she would not set foot near the playhouse unless the hive was eradicated.

I was stung by a bee once, while I was was the van. It flew through the water coming from the hose and decided I sprayed him on purpose. So he turned around and stung me in the hand. That was my excuse for not washing the car anymore!
