So much for sleeping in

Yesterday morning, I was still in bed while preparing myself to get up and go into the office for a few hours (“The deadline is when?). I hadn’t slept well for a few nights as the new ice maker sounds like the Tin Man vomiting shrapnel into a galvanized bucket whenever it dumps a load of ice. I’m still finding this … startling.
Anyhow, I was running through my mental list of Stuff to Do, when I felt a like I’d been jabbed with a Glover's needle. Nope, a wasp got me. IN MY OWN BED. It got me on the arm, above the elbow - it could have been much worse. And while a highly effective way to wake the hell up, I do not recommend it.

I probably didn’t need the coffee on top of the adrenaline, either. At least I was the only one in the office, so nobody could hear me singing.



  1. Yeah, I'll pass on 'that' wake up call... :-)

  2. Not one of the better ways to wake up in the morning is it? Worst sting I ever received was by a hornet to the back of my head.

  3. "sounds like the Tin Man vomiting shrapnel into a galvanized bucket..." THAT is fantastic! Your adroitness with a phrase continues to amaze...
