Bee in the car

There's a TV spot running now, I think for Progressive, but maybe not, where a guy trashes his car because of a bee. I nearly had that experience today.

I was driving along on a hilly and winding road when a bee or wasp or something got into the car. I had the windows and sun roof open. I was going around 45, the speed limit, and the thing got down into the foot well and into my fairly loose-fitting boat shoes (no socks). I nearly flipped out, swerved, hit the brakes, and was thankful there was no on-coming traffic.

I got my foot out of the shoe, but it was still struggling in the foot well. I finally got to a country side road and pulled over, when the thing just got up and flew out of my open door.

Scary couple of minutes.

Funny, bees or wasps don't affect me like that. But have a LARGE spider crawl across my dashboard or drop down from above and I'm a mess.

Reminds me of my grandfather who nearly jumped out of our fishing boat in the middle of the lake (he couldn't swim) because a cute little field mouse was in the boat.

And you say I have fucked up priorities for having the windows closed with AC. At least I didn't nearly die because of having my windows open. ;)
