Four Seasons of fear

 Buzz, buzz, buzz. Sting, sting, sting. Bite, bite, bite. Fun.

Buzz, buzz, buzz. Sting, sting, sting. Bite, bite, bite. Fun.

For wusses there's something for us to fear in all four seasons. Winter, cold, and slippery ice. Spring, allergies; no guesswork needed there. Fall, nuts falling from trees and Halloween. But those three don't hold a proverbial candle to the most danger-laden season of all: Summer.

Summer is fraught with sunburn, boating accidents (remember, never go on a boat, never), hot pavement on bare feet (like you'd be caught without proper foot ware), out-of-order air-conditioners. But the most feared of all is the category owned by buzzing, stinging, biting insects. 

Horrible. They buzz, which is irritating. But when they stop buzzing they either sting or bite, which is painful. There's no win with buzzing, stinging, biting insects. 

When encountering a buzzing, stinging, biting insect it's best to: 1) start flailing your arms about wildly. 2) start running. 3) start screaming. Don't worry about trying to keep these steps in mind, you'll likely be doing them already.
