of wasps and men


well, i'm no longer an ER virgin. thanks to the ever so tiny, but ever so bad (for me) stings of two wasps last week i wound up completely puffed up, covered with hives, and finding it difficult to breath in the mt. pleasant ER. thank goodness my friends magnus and adam had come for a visit and were the heroes of the day. they drove me there, they politely stood aside while i vomited, held my hand while the nurses poked about in vain trying to hit my vein without ever succeeding, and made sure i made it home safe and well. thanks guys! it was an exciting break from thesis writing!
