Oh that's un-bee-lievable! This was a hoot, right down to worrying about the brother's blackmail.

I like the idea of the malicious bee watching you. A particularly stong beginning and ending to this piece, I thought. Well done.
Bee stings aren't funny when they occur, but you did a good job of description to make us smile with this one.

You portrayed the agony and potential for humiliation with an energy that resembled that of the bee. Well written. Fast paced. Great ending. Loved the APB. yeggy
A miracle that you can make such humor out of such a painful experience. I like the way you told the story.

My grandmother sat on a pair of them. It wasn't dignified but it was funny for everyone except her. Undressing in the door way would have put it over the top as far as family stories go and yes it would have reappeared at the wrong times...I know because I would have been the one exaggergating every detail. Thanks for your story I liked it.
I really related to this one when I was judging, since I have been stung on the nose by a honeybee! Your exciting verbs, and conversational tone made this an enjoyable read. Blessings, Elizabeth
Haha! I can't believe more people didn't comment on this--it's great!
