My son learned a lot about bees recently. He went and saw a demonstration by a beekeeper and got to see a hive and a queen up close. He asked me if I had ever been stung by a bee and what it was like. I honestly told him that for me it’s always more of a surprise than anything. I described in detail the 3 times I remember being stung. The next day he proudly announced to his mom “I think that bee stung me!” Her response was “Oh no, you definitely didn’t get stung. When a bee stings you you will know because it really, really hurts!!!” Now he’s terrified and refuses to go outside.
