My 24 Year Streak Without a Bee Sting Has Come to an End

Friday, October 9, 2020

 I was just chilling on my bed under my cozy zebra-print blanket, listening to some classic rock when all of sudden I felt a pain in my left foot. At first I thought it was a mini charley horse, but then a new spot started started to hurt behind my knee on my right leg. So I moved my blanket to investigate, and wouldn't ya know it, it's a bee crawling around stinging me. Thankfully, it was just those two spots and I managed to get rid of the bee before it could do more damage. 

They stings didn't hurt as much as I thought they would, but I wasn't putting any pressure on them. So I thought it'd be fine and I could just go to my medicine cabinet and get some hydrocortisone cream and chill. 

Except I didn't have any cream. 

I had to walk twenty minutes to the nearest CVS on a foot that was stung. It wasn't that bad, it just took longer than normal because at some points I would start walking on the opposite side of the sting on my foot to not have as much pressure on it. So a forty minute round trip and a total of ten flights of stairs to get one four dollar bottle of hydrocortisone cream. 

And now the pain is steady and I will be reapplying the cream every hour on the hour until it is not.

On the bright side I learned I don't have a bee allergy.
