That's kind of like wanting to flame an EF poster and realizing that their partner is a mod.

That's a bit more than a couple of bee stings

Re: It get's worse...

I miss hearing stories like that from friends back home (or experiencing them yourself) I lived in a cottage that was surrounded by bushes and constantly had to deal with spiders the size of your hand (which were actually quite harmelss but when you wake from a deep sleep to find one hanging over you on the bed, thats not cool) and vine snakes that wanted the eat the geckos that infested our place. Also had a little squirrel stuck in a water jug but that was cute. Its actually not so bad being that close to nature. It was like national geographic right in our cottage.

I'm not the only one with a punctuation obsession then! Wrongly placed apostrophes drive me crazy. Not keen on hornets either, snakes are ok from a distance.

A common iPad typo of mine. Methinks the spellchecker may be wrong
