Another bike ride, another yellow jacket sting. :(

Today's little monster flew down the front of the sports bra to sting me in the under-boob before I pulled over to let it out. It didn't TRY to get out, it decided to attack instead, because yellow jackets are nasty, evil insects.

So sick of this. What, there is nothing better to do in the entirety of nature than sting me? All of those flowers and food are worthless?

Gah. /o\

They need to invent some kind of netting protection for bicyclists! You have the worst luck.

I do! As far as he remembers, my husband has never been stung while bicycling, but it happens to me several times a year.

I mean, I've been stung in the armpit while wearing sleeveless jerseys so many times that I now switch my deodorant during hot weather, just in case the more flowery-scented stuff might be attracting bees and hornets. :O

Double ouch! I would give up cycling. I hate bee stings. So painful and itchy :(

I love cycling, but I don't know why I'm so much more of a target than other people!

Or why so many of my stings are yellow jackets and not bees. The strength of the venom is SO much stronger, and then... itchy. :O
