Keeping Watch

Mr and Mrs Bluebird keep watch over their house as the swallows torment them. 

Let me tell you a story about fire, bees and hair.  Yesterday John says..... holy crap I burned all the hair off my arm, I wonder when I did that?  Hummmm Lynn told him that he should have known when he did that, he burned like a lot of hair off his arm.  Now let's skip about 2 hours later and I'm sitting by the fire and decide to put my hand on my head and I get a big ole' sting on my finger.  Holy crap I've just been stung by a bee.  Now I haven't been stung in a long time and with my family history lately I wonder if I'm allergic.  The other two family members just made it to the hospital in time so I start to think about this.  Now since I'm thinking about it, can I swallow, is my throat getting tight, swallow, feel my face, swallow, is my face swelling up, swallow...oh my I'm smelling something funky.... hummm I better go look in the mirror and see if my face looks like a balloon.  The results are...... I didn't get stung by a bee after all, a spark landed in my hair and my finger must have snuffed it out..... too late, I lost a gob of hair.  So remember this the next time you sit by the fire..... wear a helmet and arm bands!!
