I haven't learned much over the years. Last week, we visited a stunning city park in Benalmádena. The cactus gardens are out of this world. As I bent to take a picture of a prickly pear (chumbera) flower, San Geraldo said, "Watch out for the bee." I saw it leave the flower, so I assured him I was safe. I got my picture and then quickly turned to another flower.
As I clicked the shutter, a bee (or THE bee) shot off that flower and slapped me in the head before flying off. No sting.
(Click the images, but don't fall off your chair; they get bigger.)
And without first moving my head out of the way of the door.
"That is just so typically me..."
This morning's episode reminded me of a line from Monty Python's Gumby Theatre: "I've got my head stuck in the cupboard!" Lucky for you (and especially San Geraldo who is not a Monty Python fan), I couldn't find a video clip.
