Got stung inside my left elbow. That'll perk you right up in the morning - better than coffee.

WTF is a wasp doing in New Hampshire in February?!

I'm glad it wasn't in my drawers...

Rodent,

You must have a wasps nest somewhere in your house. Check the laundry room (near the vent) or perhaps in the back of your dresser. I'm thinking 12ga with beehive rounds will do the trick.

That's a hell of a way to start the morning. Did you at least kill that little bitch?

Greeaaat.

One of the things I liked about NH was that the winters killed EVERYTHING. I thought.

I'm going to be paranoid about getting dressed for a while.

BTW, it's amazing how fast you can get a T-shirt off when properly motivated.

That's not so bad. Once I put on my jeans, and I felt something very scratchy on my leg. I froze, afraid to find out what it was, but finally I managed to force myself to take the jeans off. There, in my pant leg, was a large wolf spider.

Every TShirt I put on has a WASP in it!

I was once suprised to find a wasp in my bed in the morning. I had a lot to drink the previous night and thought she was catholic.

This is why your mother told you to put your laundry away.

The teeshirt was on the floor. Yes, it was. Don't backtalk me.

Your car priveleges have been revoked until you clean up your room AND the garage.

A friend in Zimbabwe walked into her kitchen one night, and felt something wet spray on her leg. She stopped, paused, then took another step towards the light switch. Something wet sprayed her leg again. She backed out of the kitchen and got a flashlight. Spitting cobra.

We had King Cobra on the plantation when my parents lived in Malaysia. The consensus was that the venom would kill in about an hour, which was a real problem considering that the hospital with the antivenon was in Singapore, 3 hours away.

Shoot my kitchen full of holes or sell my house.....

Yep, that would be a problem

Have you ever seen the film footage of the fertility rite of women in Burma KISSING King Cobras on the head?

To see it makes one's blood run instantly cold.

As for a spitting cobra in the kitchen, well, hopefully the pool of urine I left behind would deprive the snake of traction while I fetched my shotgun/pitchfork/flame thrower.

Oh, and in the spirit of oneupmanship I would like to state that one morning I slipped on cat vomit and fell down a flight of stairs. My face broke my fall, so no big deal.
