Re: Is getting stung pretty common
If you know how many times you have been stung you don't have very many hives or you are paying too much attention to something which doesn't need being paid attention to. Scratch off the stinger and go back to work.
When I worked at milking cows I would get slapped in the head w/ a wet cow tail every now and then or stepped on by a big footed Holstien but I never counted how many times it happened. How much milk she gave yes, but not how many times she swatted me w/ that sh y tail.
