Yesterday as I was talking with a teacher and getting ready for my next class, she suddenly jumped back and exclaimed “Bee!” Sure enough, one was flying above our heads. It took a few minutes, but the other teachers got it out of the classroom. I was useless.
All of my life I have always thought that I have a bee allergy. I know my father has one and I remember always making a note of my alleged allergy to teachers when going on school trips that involved things like apple farms and other exciting places one goes to on school trips as a child in southern New Jersey.
But I have no proof that I actually have a bee allergy. I also have no desire to ever find out. This might make me useless in these cases, but I do hope no one thinks I am making excuses.
