I am an animal lover. Even the scary ones. Even the pesky insects. I feel that God created these lovely beast for a reason. Which is enough for me to feel love toward them all.
My Blog friend Lori, from, Lori times five (http://loritimesfive.blogspot.com/ ) recently blogged about her adventures in Africa, and some of the critters that joined her journey. She is much braver than I! I admire her and love reading her blog. I highly recommend her blog.
Anyway, back to my Stupid Meet Stupid.
This morning I decided to rescue a wasp that has been trapped in the kitchen window for a couple of days. I have been watching him get so close to the hole where he entered, but then stupidly can't seem to crawl back through it. This morning, I feared he has been without food & water too long and would need me to help him. Me, being the other Stupid.
I put some knit gloves on, and proceeded to open the window enough to stick my hands in. I have gotten the outside window opened up a bit, and I tried to shoo him out. He panicked and kept trying to go the other way. So, then I gentle cupped my gloved hand over him, caught him and proceeded to let him out to the outside. The little Bastard stung me, THROUGH THE GLOVE! I let him go, he flew back in and I tended my wound. Ouch! I have not been stung by anything in many years. Bugs seem to be at peace around me and we get along in harmony, until today.
I left the outside window opend ajar, and he still can't figure it out. It is up to him now, I am done. Leave it to me to meet a stupid wasp!
