So the biggest thing I get from this story is that I will never kiss a ferret. I am not sure that the proof the flu forms in the roof of one’s mouth matters much as it is still spread by sneezing and coughing. So if you have it STAY AWAY from other people or wear a mask and rubber gloves. Tis the season. Get your flu shots folks. Like a Stephen King movie waiting to happen. Bees do such great work in the environment yet can be such wicked little beasts! The fireman actually got them up inside his safety gear! How does that happen? I had a bad brush with a bumble bee as a kid and I still remember the exact moment I was stung, where I was, how old I was, what happened at the hospital and how I was treated by my parents afterward. Not fun messing with bees. Scary stuff.
