Freaked Out!

The last few days (three to be exact), I have been battling a "RUSTY RED HORNET" in the studio. The hornet that I will call "Buzz" has been sneaky. I will be patiently working and Buzz will come out from some place and fly around my head like a bad dream. As soon as I go into a full all out attack, Buzz disappears.
Here's the problem, I am allergic to bee stings, I swell up like a pumpkin and can't get my breath. When I get stung, I take a double dose of benadryl and go to the hospital. Normally, I can wait in the hospital parking lot for about 30 minutes until the symptoms subside, if not it's into the hospital emergency and a shot of adrenalin. So... it's an understatement to say that I FREAK-OUT around bees. In fact, I scream like a little girl.

Lucky for me, I have a boat paddle in the studio and I will use it! Finally, Mr.Buzz came in range and with a few home runs, I nailed the bee. As you can see, not too much damage around, just a few maps out of sorts. I survived!
RIP, Mr Buzz!
Get away from the big screen and get on a big! stream!


  1. Maybe you should talk to your doctor about one of those bee-sting kits that you can get an injection of epinephrine from, just in case. Hate to see something bad happen to you.

  2. Yeah, I have had an epipen, but the shelf-life is short, about 18 months and it cost a couple hundred bucks. I am lucky, if I take a double dose of benadryl in the first 5 minuites after the sting, I do okay. I still drive to the hospital to make sure. Also, I always have benadryl on me just in case.
