    My husband did that once a long time ago at work. Luckily he is not allergic to bees. He actually swallowed the bee and was stung in the throat. Dr. asked if his throat was swelling shut, he said no so they told him to eat popsicles, lots of them to make sure it didn't swell. I found out after the fact. He is very careful now.

    To avoid the possibility of being stung, always blow firmly into your bottle or can before drinking anything that has been sitting outside. The pressure of your breath taking up the space in the container will quite often force the intruder to leave the premises. ;-)

    I have done this before but luckily wasn't stung. I have been stung inside the mouth though (while riding my bike). And yes, I am allergic. It was not a fun experience and is very scary.

    Glad you weren't stung. Being allergic is no fun. I am so allergic to bees that I can't even eat anything with honey in it. The last time put me on a ventilator for a week!

    they make something now out of plastic, it snaps on the open can and has a top like a soda bottle, so you can keep it closed. Keeps the bubbles in too.

    here are some

    This actually happened to a man at work and he had to go to the emerg. room and because of it being on co. time/work related etc. they did a standard drug test which he failed because he had been doing drugs! What are the chances of being found out like that??!! Glad you didn't get stung!!

    As the expression goes - Been there, done that, got the sting. The time, about 20 years ago, I was outside the fence watching one of my exchange students at tennis practice. I am mildly allergic, dashed out to the nearest fast food joint, which just happened to be a McDonald. (I have never eaten at the Golden Arches, don't plan on it, but all I needed was ice. They wanted to charge me 50 cents for the cup. I knew I didn't have any money with me. I left, walking to the BK next door. By the time I got in, my lips were swollen, and my eyes puffy. I must have frightened the clerk when I asked for ice. A customer walked me to a chair, and like summer lightning,someone had put ice in an apron and had it on my face. Someone was asking if I wanted to go to the ER, another voice was asking to call an ambulance, someone else had an eppi-pen in their car. I just sat there with my face buried in the apron of ice. I was having no difficulty breathing, so I thanked everyone, laughed at the experience of drinking a yellow jacket and asked if I could have a cup of ice to go. Not only did they give me the ice, they gave me a big cup of Coke, because it is a bronchial dilator. I keep those cardboard coasters with me most of the time to keep bugs, bees, and debris out of my drinks. Thanks to all of the good people in the world.

    I did that once and the bee stung me on the lip. I looked like Angelina Jolie for about a week. And it was sore a lot longer than that. Now, I always check!
