what really stinks is getting a sting on your ear while wearing your vail.

ouch....I had a similar experience with a yellow jacket when i was younger. I ended up taking benadryl and using enough ice on my lip to outfit a 4th of July BBQ

Last summer, I had a bee get inside my veil. I heard it buzzing but figured it was on the outside close to my ear. Until....I felt it crawl INSIDE my ear. It went right up into my ear canal. FREAKY!!!! I remained calm, however, and it eventually crawled back out without stinging me. Don't wish to repeat that little episode!

That happened to my 7 year old daughter last year. Climbed right in her ear canal. She screamed, well, like a little girl. I was ripping my veil and gloves off to tend to her, I was able to get it out, but it sure freaked her out. All in all, I was just thankful that it didn't sting her, tho I think any chance of her keeping bees ever in her life is D.O.N.E. :no:
