Recently, I was telling Karen that I don't think I have ever been stung by a bee. As soon as I said it I tried to get the words back in my mouth but it's hard to get bee back in because it's pretty much just a letter. A short, quick, stupid letter that comes out too fast. I realized that saying I'd never been stung by a bee would be one of those thoughts that becomes reality even though I don't actually think if you just think of something it happens unless you think of barfing.
Now, when I am not looking there are bees where I don't expect them. Like in my BASIL! Without even looking, I stuck my hand in my pot of basil to snip the flowers off and the whole plant moved and buzzed. I didn't realize it was FULL of bees! Naturally I screamed and ran inside to get my camera. Well, duh, I guess the flowers attract bees and basil honey with mozzarella something pasta sounds good, but still, I can't eat that basil now or get within ten feet of it without a stick.
I know, I know, we need bees. But do they have to be so frightening and near my food? I am more afraid of bees than I am of spiders.
Maybe the the bees will hear those annoying dogs next door and leave.
