OW OW OOOOOOOOOOW<br><br>
Let me whine for a sec?<br>
I got stung by a wasp this afternoon. yuck!!! I was shooting some video for work and sat down for a break and happened to sit on a bench where an extended family of wasps live. Fortunately I only got stung by one of them!!<br>
I dont react much to stings, so thats a good thing.. my poor pinky finger though!!<br><br>
And yes, the ol worrywart Kel had to call the doc and get reassured that unless I was allergic, I - and the little one will be just fine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>

Poor thing! I hope your finger feels better soon.<br><br>
Wasps give me the creeps. They're so gangly and stinger-y. They just LOOK like they'd love to hurt you, YK?<br><br>
I've never been stung by a bee, wasp, hornet, yellowjacket, or any of those types of critters, and I think I'm extra-scared of them b/c I don't know what a sting feels like. Also, my mom is anaphylactic to bee stings, so I live in fear of finding out that I am, too. Yikes.

Thanks for the sympathies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> It was better by later that night. It just hurts SO MUCH when they get ya. I had never been stung until I started working on campus here at the University. They seem to have a wasp problem here and just can't control them. ><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Wasps ARE scary critters. They look angry even when they are just hanging out. yuck.
