First Order of Business When You Get Bees

In preparation for getting our bees, Michael and I decided that we needed to come up with a form of non-verbal communication in case one of us gets stung and can't speak. If you have bees, or are thinking about getting bees, you may want to  think about adopting some of our "sign language."

Aghhh! I just got stung!
 No action is necessary after this sign. A sympathetic face and restraint from laughing is all that is advised.

 Run for your life!
Action advised: RUN!

I'm going into Anaphylactic shock!
When you see this sign, call 911 immediately. 

You are too late!

Feel free to print off these images and study them before you get your bees. Make sure everyone is clear on the signs. We will be quizzing our children on them.

We will have more articles on bees this week!

That is hilarious!!! I love Mike's facial expressions. I hope that you will never need to use those signs though! Can't wait for the bee posts.

We just got bees. I'll have to be sure I brief my son on the proper way to signal. Thanks for the tips. :D Ha! Funny post.

This is just the laugh I needed today. I hope the bees like elbows.

My hubby, who has up until now fully supported all of my animal acquisitions, is still leery of my desire to get bees. I'm reading up and hopeful that next year the Bee Haus will be available in the US. Perhaps if they are in a cute box they won't seem so dangerous to him. LOL
