This is a picture 3 days after my wasp sting (Still red, itchy and sore)

Besides last week, I can’t remember the last time I was stung by a bee or a wasp?

Last Tuesday, Kai and I were driving to the West End for a beach playdate. As I got out of the car, I put my jandels (flip flops) on and felt a sting right between my big and second toe. I looked down and swatted the wasp out of there but it was too late. Funny because Kai and I seem to be the only ones in New Zealand who ALWAYS wear shoes. One of our little friends who is 10 will go to school all day barefoot. People will be barefoot on the beach, at the park and in the grocery store here. Not me, I wear my shoes almost always and I still got stung. Funny how that works.

My foot itched so much and was sore for a little over a week. I had a massage the day after I got stung and forgot to mention it to the massage therapist. So, half way through the massage she started massaging my foot (it wasn’t swollen yet but itched like crazy) I loved it! It felt like she was itching it from the inside. Looking back, I think she spread the venom all around my foot because after the massage my foot swelled up and wouldn’t fit in my shoe. I’m just saying..
