What Happens When You Headbutt a Bee at 25 MPH?

(Above) That’s what happens – I was road cycling at a good pace yesterday and I felt something hit my forehead. I knew it was too soft to be a rock, and then suddenly, stinging pain – I had actually slammed into a bee, and as its last act, had injected me with its venom right in the middle of my forehead. You can see the pink spot of injection right between my eyebrows.

When I got home, everything actually looked ok, but when I woke up this morning, there was clear swelling and it’s been getting worse since then. I feel like I have a mask over my eyes because my vision is slightly blocked off and the edges of my eyes near my nose now go very deep because of all the puffiness. My wife could not stop laughing when she saw me this afternoon.

I saw a doctor this morning and this may last a week or so.

RIP Mr. Bee, I am sorry we crossed paths.
