So there are two types of bugs: good bugs and bad bugs. Now, I'm not talking about ecology here, or the fact that all animals are useful and serve a purpose. I'm talking about the fact that revenge is a dish best served with protective gear and lethal chemicals.
You see, my darling husband George, our dog Cooper, and I were all three stung by yellow jackets Friday before last while sitting on our deck. Cooper and I experienced the regular discomfort of such stings, but George, who was stung under the eye, swelled up and broke out in all-over hives. We spend an evening at the ER plotting revenge.
He executed the plot (and the nest of yellow jackets) without further incident. But he's had renewed swelling and itching over this weekend, and I feel that, perhaps, the bad bugs didn't suffer as much as they should have.
So yellow jackets are bad bugs, no matter what an entomologist might say.
Butterflies, however, are very good bugs, and they look pretty on cards, too!
Doesn't Wink of Stella make a perfect shimmer for butterfly wings? My heart's all aflutter!
Mercy, grace, peace, love, and kindness to all creatures without stingers or venomous fangs,
