Anywho, I digress …

Loosely based on what might have happened. Or not.

Lucky surprise

What do you see?

I got into a water cooler discussion about bugs yesterday.  There was general agreement that, typically, an encounter with a bug is not such a great thing.  They are great in the rain forest – leaf cutter ants, very cool – but not so much up close and personal – cockroaches in your bed, not cool.

Anywho, I digress …

Quite a while ago, I was on a road trip to Scotland when a surprising thing happened.  We had just left Loch Ness, where Nessie was nowhere to be seen, and were driving to our next stop when I noticed something out the corner of my eye.  I glanced down.

Imagine my surprise when I saw an enormous bee crawling up my shirt.  In fact, I was so surprised, that I tried to jump out of the car.  Really.  I had the door open and I was ready to jump.

Luckily, I had my seat belt on and so my efforts were thwarted.  Very lucky in fact as we were doing about 70 mph.  Extremely lucky that I wasn’t driving.

I was rebuked for overreacting.  Overreacting?  There was a bee on my shirt! Not a fan.

Hooray for seatbelts.
