John and our friend Michèle are outside drinking wine on the patio without me, and I really really wish I could be out there, too, but I can't, because there are FUCKING WASPS. John and Michèle had been eating paté and crackers with their wine, and the wasps came, but they went away when John brought the paté inside. So, I figured it was OK to go and sit on the patio, too. But every time I went outside, the wasps came back. It didn't matter how long they had been gone, they were back within minutes of my sitting down. Last time, one almost landed on me,  and I let out a shriek and bolted inside as fast as I could. I watched them from the other side of the patio screen, almost in tears, as John and Michèle tried to wave them off. I think part of it is that they discovered food there a while ago, and they keep coming back for more. And I think part of it is that they can smell my fear.

Wasps are my one big phobia. I am not fond of heights or crowds, but I can control that. But if there's a wasp (or even another hovering insect that maybe could be a wasp) I get all flaily and panicky. I am so scared of them that I can't control myself around them. I think it's because unlike bees, wasps will sting you just because they can. Bees will die, so they only sting you if they have to. Wasps don't die when they sting you, so they'll just do it over and over. They also hover, and don't go away when you shoo them. And for some reason, they love me, so they hover near me all the time. I have wasp traps set up, but they ignore them completely. The worst part is that I have never been stung. Maybe if I were to be stung, the fear would go away? Or maybe it would get worse. I don't think I want to take the risk.

So now I am inside for good, I think, and not enjoying a nice evening on my patio. I will research ways to get rid of wasps and maybe build another trap.





Gah, I can feel them on me.





(In case you were wondering, yes, The Unicorn and the Wasp did indeed scare the crap out of me. I have a hard time rewatching it, because OMG GIANT FUCKING WASP.)

Urgh, wasps. :( I get freaked out every time they come near me, too. I can't stand them. Awful things. (But then I am deathly afraid of bees, too, even though I know they are less likely to sting me. But wasps are even worse.)

This is completely off the subject but, I can steal that icon of yours, right? Right? It's not proprietary?
