It was too good to wish for – avoiding stings permanently.
The very first was just a couple of weeks ago – I was over confident and just using one pair of the thin blue gloves. A little sharp pain alerted me to teh possibility of a sting and then I saw the sting still throbbing. It had embedded itself in the glove rather than my hand so I got off lightly.
The next stings were a clump of three (what is the collective noun for multiple stings?) I was using new gloves not realising that their grip at the wrist was not as tight as previous ones resulting in a sting on each wrist. the final indignity was the realisation that because I had not worn trousers under my all in one bee suit, they seemed to have stung my leg, too.
