I’m bringing home my baby bumblebee…

Tonight, I researched bees.  Tina got stung the other day (3 times!!!  By the same bug!!!), so we were trying to figure out what kind of bug it was.  She found a picture online, but it didn’t say what kind of insect it was.  So I found a different website (I’d give you the link, but I already closed it, and I’m pretty sure I don’t ever need to see it again) that is supposed to help you identify every sort of crawly or flying thing in existence.  Ugh.  I’m pretty sure I’m having bad dreams about bizarro bugs tonight. There were SO many pictures (did you ever have any idea how many different types of earwigs there are?!!) of SO many bugs. 

I have a theory… I think bugs, like mosquitoes and bees and the like, are more attracted to people who have bad reactions or are allergic to them.  I haven’t been stung by a bee since I was 5 (knock on wood!!!).  And when I get mosquito bites, I don’t usually welt up too badly – and I really don’t get bitten that often (knock on wood!!!).  But other people who seem to be way more sensitive to little venomous beasts seem to get attacked more often.  Is there any scientific truth to that, or did I totally make it up?  Do you think I’m on the verge of a huge scientific discovery??  Maybe I should trademark it, or copyright, or patent, or whatever you’re supposed to do with major scientific discoveries.
