My year of firsts

This year, I experienced my first broken bone (which sucked). Yesterday, I got my first sting (a wasp, also quite sucky). It was out by my dumpster, on my toe (I know, kind of a weird place--or maybe not, here in Florida, where we live in flip-flops and sandals). Within a couple of minutes I was incredibly nauseous and my tongue felt kind of weird, but it passed in an hour or so. It must have been from the venom--if I was actually allergic, I think it would have been a lot worse.

Here's hoping I make it to 32 relatively unscathed. ;)

The first sting can be the one that kind of primes your immune system, Jen. It's often the second sting that results in a real allergic reaction, if you're going to have one. Since you did react to this first one, watch out if you are stung again.

Brandi: lol, pretty soon, these stories will cease to even phase you. they're pretty much par for the course around here. =-)

Lori: thanks for the heads up. Still, I'm planning on there NOT being another one

Ouch! Bummer!

I got stung once when I was about 5. It sucked and I have no desire to repeat it.
