Sachi the Stinger Magnet, originally uploaded by LeeLeFever_TwinF.

We thought it was a coincidence, we thought it might be different in other countries. But no, she is universally attractive to all things that bite and sting. Today it even happened underwater via jellyfish. Twice even, when no one else got stung. I guess they don't make bug spray or lotion (as pictured above) for that.

So jellyfish are my friends too Sachi.I hope someone put vinegar on it after for you? Vinegar is the key, it will stop the sting. I have yet to find the prevent-a-sting lotion, but I've got all the home remedies for the post-bite or -sting experience. And Lee, enjoy the sweat. It was 0 degrees Celcius, or 32 degrees F in Vancouver today. Brrrr.

Thanks Monique! I had a good 1/4th of a vinegar bottle poured on my leg the first time, and then an hour later, I poured the rest of the bottle on myself for the second lashing. Luckily it wasn't worse than a bad ant bite, but just about 15 bites in two different lines. uck.
