I'm passing on a hint from my friend Linda. After my last sting, she suggested a paste of meat tenderizer. I tried that and I'm here to say that it immediately took away that immense burning pain. It didn't stop the swelling, however. Once again, I have no dimples in my knuckles and my palm looks like a paw. Milking this morning will be a challenge as I can barely bend the affected finger.
Mr. Sparrow sweet-talked a lady friend over to his pad in the barn last night. I could have told him that relationship was going nowhere. She wouldn't join him in his cubby, but stayed in the "living room" one space over. Can't blame a guy for trying.
We're due for another day of one-hundred-plus degrees today, and then get one day of (wait for it) ninety-eight! before it climbs back to triple digits. As with the wasp sting, I'll take whatever relief I can get.
