Seriously?

Last night I was sitting in a friend's backyard, eating yummy food.  A bee was flying around which a few people commented on; I told them not to worry, lately everything liked to bite me so they were safe.  Approximately five minutes later I was stung by the bee. 

On the INSIDE of my top lip.**

I don't know which god of the insects I've pissed off, or how, but I would happily make amends if I only knew what to do. 

On the plus side, with my lip hurting I hardly noticed the itching for several hours.  And I am now a poster child for the phrase 'bee-stung lips'.



**I had dipped a piece of bread into a dish of melted butter, and as I lifted it to chomp glanced away.  The bee landed on the bread while it was around 6" from my mouth and in motion (I think maybe he used me to commit bee suicide).  Thus, I bit down on bread and bee and got stung inside my lip.
