try to remain calm
September 17, 2008
I know, I know, you’ve been through the killer bee scare, and you’re not impressed. We’ve all seen the tv movie of the week, and we’ve been hearing about the “Africanized Bees” for a generation now. Plus, I’m the guy who’s afraid of hummingbirds, so what do I know? I get it.
But I’ve been permanently scarred now. I won’t ever be able to wear the Speedo again. My career as an upper leg model is OVER.
The genetically altered battle bees are living in Big Cottonwood Canyon. The good news is, they are easy to kill while riding a motorcycle. I may still have some debris stuck in my shorts.
The bad news is, they leave a mark that will last FOREVER.
Or at least a few weeks.
Here we are, three and a half weeks after the queen mother of all flying insects attacked me. Three and a half weeks later, I still have a scar, redness, and itchy skin. Maybe I shouldn’t mention the itchy skin. Yeah, it’s best you don’t know that the skin is itchy.
I’m going to make an appointment, I’m beginning to think something was implanted below that red mark. And not a good thing.
