You know what hurts?


Getting stung by a hornet or a bee on the upper lip hurts.  A lot.  I ran into one or the other while riding today and it got me.  My face was contorted in pain for miles.

I'm not allergic to stings or anything, so it was no big deal past the pain.  That said, I got abnormally tired and fell asleep between 6 PM and just a few minutes ago.

As a result of yesterday's post, I have received a bunch of submissions, thanks everyone.  But there are shirts still left so show me what you got....

I'll start the inspiration page a bit later tonight.

I was stung by a wasp once... I was told to spread mud on it... it really helped... WTF?

i hate the bee stings you get just because you happen to run into the bee - like in your case. I also got one while riding a waverunner. I must have just ran into in and it stung me.

At 15 I got stung by over 40 at one time... I survived because of no allergies... serious pain... but nothing compared being stung by a Box Jellyfish... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Box_jellyfish
The box jellyfish has been called "the world's most venomous creature,"
1992 in Fiji I got stung on my sciatic nerve... I nearly died... the same day I got hit a lady died. Days later I would still get full body convulsions... Be safe!

Ouch!! That must have really hurt!
I have actually never been stung by a bee (knock on wood), but I'm always afraid of getting stung, especially on the bike when I run into them all of the time!

Ouch! Back when I was out on my bike all the time, I used to inevitably have them fly down my cycling jersey via a somewhat open zipper when it got hot. And then they'd sting. No fun. Gonna go check out your other post.

So funny, I got stung by a hornet yesterday and literally, my first thought was "I hopet his doesn't mess up my long run tomorrow." Thank goodness it wasn't the lip, though. OUCH!

Jason said...

and i thought eating a few gnats on my run today was bad, but this blows that away and proves the adage that it could always be worse.

Barbie said...

OUCH. If I got stung by a bee my head would have swelled up like a soccer ball. Hope your feeling better after your sleep.

Julie said...

I feel your pain! I have been stung too many times to count! Bee stings suck! Take care:)
