I mean stung for real, but a paper wasp. Bugger got me twice. I was working in the yard trimming shrubs around the house, same ones I have trimmed a couple times a year for 13 years. Never found any wasps nesting in there in all that time. Got careless I guess in that I did not check the last couple times. When we first moved here I was more cautious of such things.
I was never alergic in the past, and this time since I have become alergic to other things that never bothered me before I thought maybe I'm now alergic to stings too. But I apparently am still OK though my wrist swelled up damn good and stayed that way for about 8 hours. It's been over 24 hours now and it still stings to the touch or when I bend my wrist and is still swollen a bit and red around the two stings.
So why do I even bring this up? Because it shows how getting too comfortable with your work can set you up for a fall.
Don't forget to keep asking yourself "what could go wrong?".
