Last Friday, the Premier of Ontario was doing a news conference when a bee can be seen flying near his mouth.
In Canada, a Premier of a province is comparable to the Governor of a state.
His name is Doug Ford and he can be speaking somewhat intensely. Suddenly he starts choking a bit and he grabs a bottle of water and takes a sip.
Someone asks if he is ok and he responds by saying he's ok and the be is buzzing down there, pointing to his stomach.
I once had a bee fly into my mouth when I was running. I don't think it stung me but it hit the back of my throat which was painful.
When my mother in law was little, she knew another girl who swallowed a bee, got stung and died as a result.
