Today there was a huge paper wasp in my car. I noticed it right by Lindsay's car seat just after I'd buckled her in.

I left her door open and opened the hatch and waited for the giant bee to fly out while my kids sat blissfully unawares in the car.

When it finally flew out the hatch, I screamed as it flew by my ear.

My favorite Christmas story is A Child's Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas. In it he speaks of one of his gifts, "a book that tells you everything you ever wanted to know about wasps, except why". I hear, though, they' discovered they can be trained to sniff out bombs.

1 wmp for screaming and (i assume?) scaring your children and scarring them for life to be scared of huge scary bugs & insects. but the 1wmp point is cancelled out by your bravery in the first place :)
