I'm sitting here with a swollen foot from a bee sting. Yes, you heard me right--a bee sting. I don't know why I am prone to odd occurrences like this one, but 3 days of pain has made me grumpy and couch-ridden. FYI--this is not my first time at the rodeo...I have been stung on 5 separate occasions. My father says bees are attracted to my skin because I eat too many sweets (ha, ha). Should I have not eaten that piece of chocolate cake that fateful day? Unfortunately in this case, I don't think any holdback on the sweets would have prevented this pesky bee from choosing to sting my foot. Unable to drive or walk (merely a hobble), I am watching Sex and the City re-runs while I pick out some items for my wish list. Join me in this distraction, eh?
