“A bee is never as busy as it seems; it’s just that it can’t buzz any slower.” – Kin Hubbard
Well, it seems like it would be a good idea to kick off the blog with a short story. “Bees” was an exercise. I asked my roommate one day to give me something to write about and she said “bees” so this is what I came up with. I’m still figuring out how to link everything together the right way so if it doesn’t work right away, let me know and try again later.
Excerpt from “Bees”:
They’re everywhere. I have welts all over my body. I’m surprised I’m not dead. My cousin fell but he had too many stings and it overwhelmed the epinephrine we were able to give him, so he was lost to anaphylaxis. We’re all huddled inside the house suffering from a different kind of shock.
