Buzzzzzzz...I'm just a bee...busy bee....buzz....going about my day...buzz buzz....collecting nectar...buzz....SMACK!

Dum-de-dum....I'm just a bicyclinerina...pedal pedal...singing to myself....pedal pedal...looking a the scenery...pedal....SMACK!

When two worlds collide! At about 26 mph. No one's gonna come outta that encounter laughing (except ye may bee).

I was definitely not liable. I was on the right side of the road, clearly visible, within the speed limit. And then outta nowhere, just like Jim McDaid going the wrong way up a dual carriageway, come a whopper of a bee. He didn't see me til it was two late and he went SMACK into my eye. Well, just on the eyebrow bone.

I skreeeetched to a halt to find out WTF had hit me. It felt like I'd been shot (too dramatic??). It felt like I'd been punched in the eye. I thought for a minute it had been a stone - it wouldn't be the first time I've been pebble-dashed. But when I pulled out my little vanity mirror (as starred in the flat changing incidedt) I could see where the little "bee" had grazed my eye.

Okay. Big OWIE but i carried on. By the time I got to Garborville about 5 miles on, my sunglasses were sitting wonky on my face and my eyelid was stuck to the glass.

The faces of the people behind the pharmacy counter in Walmart is not something I'll forget too soon. They all winced, ooooo'ed, yikes'ed...one may even have giggled! Then I got some ice and sat like a beaten up saddo waiting for it to go down.

It was still VERY puffy 8 hours later. God knows how I'll look tomorrow. (Update: I looked worse and would've cried if my tear ducts hadn't swollen shut!!).

The bee fled the scene.

I had put up a pic but it was even freakin' me out so I deleted it!!

I've been offline for a week, so apologies for the lack of sympathy here (although, it did sound REEEEEEEEALLY sore & I hope you feel better), but I want to know what the conversation between you, the Nut & Jay is about - were the Coughlans having a captioning competition that the rest of us poor mortals knew nothing about???? And if so, we need to see both the photo & the captions because I think that we (your audience, no less) would be better placed to judge any such competition....
