Hurrrayyyyy! You did it! I knew you could! I think it's cute that you rescue bugs.

Priscilla said...

I remember that bee getting tangled in your hair. You forgot to mention how he stung your ear several times and how you are traumatized by the sight of a bee to this day. (no wonder you don't rescue them!)

Shelly said...

WOW - I had trouble getting to 13!!! :) I like toe rings too. I have 3 on right now. And I like my toes painted but can't do the fingernails cuz one little chip and I start picking at 'em.

I always ran from bees too until I took up photography.... Now I chase 'em to get a good shot.

Rachel said...

Priscilla-That be never stung me, he just scared me with all of his wild buzzing when he was stuck. I probably reacted like I got stung because I was so terrified.

Rachel said...

Of coarse I meant to say BEE.

Martha said...

I once had a bee sting me on the ear. It swelled up and stuck straight out. Very cute, I'm sure. I learned to shake my head when something buzzed in my ear rather than put my head down on my shoulder.

Priscilla said...

Maybe I'm combining the two memories? I knew I remembered someone getting stung on the ear!

Jon said...

You like to decorate the United States?

Anyways, this was cool, Rachel. I've known less about you than Priscilla or Martha, and this helps.

Rachel said...

Jon-LOL! I never read it that way, but that's the way I wrote it, isn't it? You also learned that I'm not great at punctuation.

Martha said...

You know, I had to go back and look at your whole list again to figure out what Jon was talking about. When I didn't find it at the first glance I took a second one (call me blonde). Yes, I did see what he was saying. :)
