    Good tip, wouldn't have thought of that. I did once take a sip of coffee and had this funny thing in my mouth. It was a gnat, yuck! Well there is that old saying about eating a pound of dirt before we die, does that go for insects too?

    When we auctioned the possessions in my aunt's house, a girl did get bit on her tongue. Luckily Benadryl took care of it.

    I'm curious....what do you mean by "semi-allergic"?

    I know, I sound like Betty White's character on Golden Girls who asks...."Can I ask a dumb question?

    I always figured when it came to bee stings and penicillin it was an either or situation.

    Oh, yuck! Nasty to find anything in your drink. Glad you are okay.

    There was a local man that was golfing and he took a drink out of his pop can and he was stung. Unfornately he did die. But yes when we see someone who has been stung and has survived and has a big fat lip it is hard not to laugh.

    Thank heavens you didn't get stung. I did that last year and I learned I can spit really good. Bee was still alive.

    There are different degrees of being allergic to anything, I work for an allergist. Some people get big red welts while I really don't get much of anything and the next person will be sent to the hospital, chest tightness and throat closing. Some people can just take a Benedryl and others need their Epi-pen, which only comes in a dual pack now, FYI. I don't need to take anything, a little baking soda maybe. It's just like with anything else, foods, trees, grasses whatever.
