When I was a young boy I got my first slingshot. Out into the woods I tromped, at one spot pushing over a dead tree and there.....was a nest of baby mice. Naturally being a piece of shit male human I launched a bee-bee into the nest...maybe...probably killing one or two...don't know because immediately after the shot made a sound the parent mouse...didn't notice the genitalia, launched itself onto my leg, sending me screaming and writhing into the woods, dropping the slingshot (never to be found again) somewhere from A to Q and forever more...finding mice more terrifying than other forrest animals.

OK, that IS truly bizarre!  I had to step in a rock wall that gave way to a yellow jacket nest to make me react like that.  And I wasn't trying to bother them.  And yes, yellow jackets give me the "willies" to this day.

Was playing catch with my son in 2001 in the yard.

Early November.   Suddenly got a pain in my left thumb.  Had to rip the glove off. 

A yellow-jacket stung me under the left thumbnail.  He'd been relaxing in the glove until I woke/disturbed him.

Don't ever get stung by a yellow-jacket directly under the thumbnail.  Save time and shove a red-hot poker under your thumbnail.

Did we scare WingsofRefuge away?
