Mrs. Mulwray

Charcoal on paper, collection of Kirby Ferris

I am having a weird morning. The day before yesterday
I lifted something up outside and unknown to me there
was a hornets nest and I was stung about 7 or 8 times
on my finger. By last night I had a difficult time sleeping
because my finger and hand are so swollen that I don't
think it could swell anymore. So I go to something I had
volunteered for this A.M. and what happens? Another wasp
stings me on the same finger. Does this qualify for weird?
Kirby asked me 'if this is a random Universe what is the
chance of this happening?' Since neither of us think it is
random more theories appeared. Kirby thought maybe it
was a harmonious event, the Universes' 'hornet homeopathics'
treatment.????? Maybe...... I actually had the same thought.
That's how weird we are.

Have a better day than I'm having.

The drawing I love - the hornets and wasp story I do NOT! Ouch - I'm hoping that the swelling has gone down some by now. :((

Wasps. Evil little things. Take some Benedryl.
I have a friend who has been stung by lightning five times. Some of us are just born lucky.

OH, how awful! I was stung by a bee on the top of my head years grandfather applied a special mud....! Hope the swelling goes down soon.

Perhaps you should seek a medical consultation? You wouldn't want the venom to move to some other place in your body. Do take care of yourself.

Dianna, Rachel, Pamela Terry and Edward, Mary Ann and Bonnie thank you for your support and stories. OMG it could have been lightning! Glass half full!!! The last sting was really a blessing as we imagined because it forced an opening and a release so I am 100% better. Rachel what an offer! Thank you.
