Big Day Out In

I'm not even going to front like I had any grand plans for today other than waiting for my new shoes to be delivered by my mail delivery person but I did venture out briefly to throw out the trash (I'm still leading that glamorous life, what can I say?) only to be accosted by several rather angry wasps.

Word on the street (aka. my keen anthropology-degree having observational skills) is that there's a huge wasp/hornet/other striped bee-like creature's nest outside my apartment buildings main doors - superb!

I'm no scared of them per se, but I do have an aversion to being stung because the last time I was stung by one of their striped brethren, my arm swelled up to twice it's normal size and prevented me from doing such things as: putting on long-sleeved shirts and rolling up my sleeves in general for the better part of two weeks.

Looks like I'm taking the long way out now.

Haha, I thought you meant WASP, as in White Anglo-Saxon Protestant.

I stepped barefoot on a bee once. It was tres lame.

I get wasps under my deck all the time. I let them bee (hahahaioasdfoijasdoifjaodfjaodfi) for the time being.

One day they stung Niki.

It.
Was.
On.

I didn't even have spray. I just went out with a nozzle hose and drowned them out of the sky. It was a valant time.

Don't sting my dogs.

Think I posted about that, can't recall.

riese - I've been avoiding potential confrontations for awhile now but eventually my luck will run out. Stinging creatures seem to love me...

missanthrope - a gaggle of WASPs would have been much more comical, though I would have been concerned that they were lost if they were congregating outside my apartment what with the recent rash of drunk hobos at 2 pm

eric - lol, I can just picture it, though in my mind you're wearing a beekeepers outfit

I heard the yip from niki and just tore out of whatever/wherever.
