Bee tragically killed

In a dreadful turn of events, Loreli Bee was beat to death when she accidentally stumbled into a rival neighborhood across town. Witnesses say she seemed disoriented. A passerby tried to help her, but it was too late.

It’s possible… right?

My imagination has always been active, but it really got to working when I saw a bee fly out of my van window this morning. I had encountered the bee, in a neighboring town, when I dropped off my teenage daughter at her high school. I tried to shoo the bee out of the van while I tended to the crying baby and ignored the incessant talking of the 2 and 3 year olds.

The bee finally flew out of the window, but returned moments later. (It was the lure of one of the kid’s fruit drinks sitting in the cup holder.) I kept a wary eye on it knowing that I had to get rid of it before I pulled off. I could imagine it flying into the baby’s rear-facing car seat and stinging her. At least the other two children would scream, or so I thought.

It refused to leave on its own so I took a heavy, blue baby blanket and attacked the bee. I knocked everything out of the cup holders including a recently sanitized pacifier, which was a small price to pay for getting rid of the bee. It had disappeared. I looked under the seat, in the diaper bag, in the blanket, but I couldn’t find it. I asked my 2 year old if she saw and she pointed to the sky. I didn’t believe her, but I didn’t have a choice so we went on our merry way.

Twenty minutes later, I saw movement out of the corner of my eye. The infamous bee was struggling up the car door and it groggily flew out the passenger side window just as I was getting to my destination. I’m sure the stunned bee was bewildered by its location and accidentally stumbled into a tree or grassy area that was inhabited by a rival bee family…

It all makes sense now, doesn’t it? :-) (I hope you’re laughing with me and not at me!)
