This morning, when walking to my car, I was stung by a bee. For no reason! I just opened my car door, walked over to say goodbye to my wife by the garage, and all of a sudden I’m being stung. I’ve swatted at bees before and never been stung. But, today, no intimidation… nothing. I don’t think I’m allergic since I haven’t swelled up yet.

But it hurts a little bit.

I got stung on the tongue by a yellow jacket who decided it would be fun to fly into my beer can.

You can imagine the surprise, and the sharp and blinding pain. The only similar pain I've encountered was when I caught my little head in my zipper. While that experience had me running around the backyard about five times, with the bee sting I sat completely still waiting to see if my tongue would swell up and choke off my airway--it didn't.

It swelled a little, the pain subsided into a rather intense itch pretty quickly, but my tongue was moderately paralyzed by the venom and I spoke like a drunk for the following three hours, though I'd had barely half the beer.

Of course, everyone else had a good good laugh.

I was stung in Hawaii by a bee with a dirty stinger and had to go to the hospital for blood poison
