The first time I remember being stung it was a bee - and I was six and stepped on the poor thing.

Since then - I would swear that it was wasps, yellow jackets, or hornets (I can't blame the nest of hornets that I ran over with a lawn mower for getting upset - I do blame VorGuy for not noticing the nest earlier when he was clearing pine cones, twigs, and such off the yard before I mowed).  I ended up in the ER with a LOT of stings (narcotic pain killer for the rest of the day) and he got chewed out for making me shower & change clothes before taking me to the ER (his mother is Felix Unger's twin sister and used to refuse to leave the house unless everything was "proper" - at 59, he still doesn't quite get the concept of "emergency room" meaning that things are not expected to be "proper").

His mother has gotten slightly better about not being perfectly put together before being seen - but at 78, she may figure that it takes a lot longer than it used to!
