If you’re looking for a random, nonsensical post, you’ve come to the right place. I study too much. I know I do. My problem is that I love it so much, but there is such a thing as too much study. I’m not going to quote Bible Scripture on this one, but trust me, it’s in there.
This is a little story about the Summer I had Bee powers. Yes, Bee powers. What are Bee powers, you ask? This is the ability to control these winged home invaders with just one suggestion and the point of a finger. I’m not talking about telepathy here. I did have to verbally command my pollinating protagonists.
Most superheroes have a backstory as to how their super powers came to Bee. Usually it’s some sort of event. Some, such as Superman, however, are just born super.
What’s my story? Well, to tell you the truth, I never really thought about it till now. I assumed my abilities came out of necessity and determination. But I’m thinking twice!
One fateful Summer day, as I took a nap on the sofa, low and behold I was stung by a bold and brazen brute of a Bee. How dare this foul fiend enter my abode with the intention of Bee-ing cruel! Forshame!
It must have Bee-n the venom of this striped trespasser that imbued me with Bee powers. A queen Bee perhaps? That makes sense. How else would I have Bee-n able to command Bees?
It was a buzzy Summer. My unwelcome adversaries were very determined to continue breaking and entering our home. No more! I’d have none of it! So I raised my finger high and called out, “Bee! You go outside!” I realized the gift I’d been given when every bee I commanded made a Bee-line for the window.
I tell ya, I was proud of these powers. I wielded them well and kept our home safe and secure. Unfortunately, my powers were short lived. May-Bee they fell to the waist-side because I didn’t continue to practice them. Perhaps I just didn’t Bee-leave enough. However, it was a Bee-u-tiful Summer, and I was never stung again.
This story is based on true events. I did get stung one Summer, many moons ago, while resting on our sofa, and I did command Bees temporarily. Was I really gifted with super powers? I’d like to Bee-leave so. Go figure, I haven’t moved any mountains, but the Bees were shaking their knees.
