Today’s things are: orange grove, bee, Jack Frost

There was a bee in the classroom today, and Miss Teresa was in a panic thinking that if anyone was stung she’d have to deal with it and she hated dealing with any form of illness.

She called for us to be calm explaining that as the orange grove was awash with blossoms this time of year, there were bees all over the place.

She tried to turn the event into a natural history lesson but Jack Frost, the coldest kid in the class, took upon himself to go at the bee with a rolled-up magazine and before anyone could say or do anything the poor bee was squashed against the window.

Miss Teresa was struck dumb by jack’s act of senseless violence even though he explained to Miss Teresa that he was acting valiantly to save her honour in the face of an impending attack upon her person by the said bee.

Jack was so full of it we all laughed while Miss Teresa sat horrified at her desk her eyes focused on the now deceased bee.

  1. I like bees. Our lavender , buddleia and green beans are awash with them. No way would I hurt a bee. Now a wasp is a different matter!

      Stay well away from wasps Di, I had one sting me on top of my head…it was more than ouch!!!

      • Wasps and I go back a long way Michael as I sat on one as a kid and subsequent generations have never let me forget it. I was stung on the neck when one fell out of the aircon unit above my desk, another stung me on the back when it was hitching a ride in the driver’s seat and I accidentally out my hand on one on the fence. Ouch indeed.
