So, there I was. blissfully floating in the pool. Serenaded by a birdie choir. And dazzled by a crimson dragonfly fluttering by. Suddenly, my bubble was burst as a yellow jacket’s stinger stabbed the tender crease of my inner left arm. OW quickly became WOW. In minutes, my arm turned tomato red and swelled up [...]
