just was reminded of an episode i had a while ago, thought id post it up...
i was walkin from taylor to fsj (a pair of towns 10 miles away i was in ages ago), half way there i saw these old dodges in this big yard with barns in the yard (i had bee nactively looking for an old truck to buy at the time), and it was early winter so wasnt watchin too much, then i wander in and hear this wierd buzzing - i see this forklift loading pallets to a truck and it dawned on me - O SHIT, BEES!! i got bundled up REAL fast, hooded sweater, gloves, all the clothing i had on hand went on. im not allergic but it IS more painful than i care for. anyway, wandered in and met the owners - since i was already kinda committed, lol. got to talkin to the owners, and i normally dont try to peg people as kin - but this husband and wife, i swore they were bee kin. the wife had the total "queen bee" feel, and natrually the hubby was the worker bee.
anywho, who else has met/ knows of insect kin? i figure they exist, given my own experiences anyway.
