Death by Bee

I’ve always liked bees. They make honey and if they sting you they die. So obviously it’s not something they set out to do. However…

Faced with a swarm in my back garden I took the only option out – I fled shrieking into the house and slammed all the windows shut, peering round the blinds in abject terror, replaying a thousand horror films in my head.

They have now taken up residence on the Green outside my house – yes, that’s RIGHT outside my house – forming a kind of living carpet of bees.

And I had to shout at some of the local kids for poking them with a stick. Honestly, they don’t care about my life at all!
