Kissed By A Wasp!

Kissed By A Wasp!

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee


Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee…  Summer of 2013

It was so hot, standing in the sunshine

My head was damp with perspiration, my hair curled up

I pulled my shirt away from my skin to let air in

My skin felt cool only for a moment

I couldn’t stand there fanning myself forever

I wanted to go inside… but, I had a ways to go

A pesky, big-ass wasp began to fly around my face

I waved my hand gently, hoping not to piss him off

I didn’t want him flying into my eyes, mouth, nose

I had the heebie-jeebies… I’m afraid of wasps

Have you ever been kissed by a wasp

A kiss by a wasp… hurts like hell

The wasp didn’t take kindly to the wave of my hand

He began to buzz closer to my face giving me cold chills

Get away, you damn wasp!  Get away!

Now, I was afraid the wasp was going to sting me

He was mad… I could hear it in his buzz

I began to run, shaking my head this way, that way!

Didn’t make no difference…. that old wasp flew in my face

Looked me in the eyes… and grinned

That wasp gave me a kiss… a kiss that hurt like hell

Right on my upper lip… making it swell up big

The pain shot through my head, oh… how it hurt!

I’ve been kissed by a wasp… it hurts like hell!

  1. Hard to like this one, but loved the description. I am HIGHLY allergic to wasp kisses…put me in anaphylactic shock…PLUS the bite! yes, I know I can’t spell anay…whatever can’t say it either LOL

  2. I got stung by a bee once on my lower lip a few years ago. Swelled up huge. It was indignant that I would dare to paint my garage door, didn’t I see it’s nest right there?
