Last week I was helping my mom with some yard work. While mowing happily along with a push behind weed trimmer I was suddenly stunned by an unpleasant sensation on my ankle. Next I noticed pain on my wrist. The pain quickly intensified and it dawned on me as to what was happening.
I had run into a nest of hornets, or wasps, (not sure, exactly).
By the time I noticed the intensifying pain in my side I was already running and groaning in agony, half mad from the pain. My mom quickly stopped what she was doing and my stepfather was quickly on the scene too. Once the adrenalin rush subsided I warned my parents of where not to go.
My mother showed concern and asked me if she needed to take me to a hospital. But by this time the pain was ebbing, though still painful as hell, and I couldn’t even see a mark on my left wrist where I had been stung only a minute earlier.
After about ten minutes I didn’t feel as though anything at all had happened to me. I continued clearing brush and trimming weeds all afternoon long. I suffered no ill effects.
I know some people would have been killed from a similar experience, but for me it was merely unpleasant. Does this count as a minor superpower or is it fairly common?
