Jilda found out first hand....or I should say first foot, what I meant when I wrote that wasps know where to sting you. She was walking over to see our great nephew Jordan. She had on sandals and she felt something tickle for a second between her toes and then WHAM. It's like the little varmint shoved an 18 inch knitting needle right up through her foot and out the back just below the ankle. She had not made it the few hundred feet home before her foot started swelling.
She called me in distress. Luckily I had bought some Benadryl a few days ago and she popped one in her mouth.
She laid on the couch and elevated her foot. When I got home this evening, she had been lying on the couch for most of the day. Benadryl does that to you. She didn't have an allergic reaction which is good but she still wants to buy a gallon of gasoline and go hunting yellow jackets.
"Let it go," I counseled.
