The Swarm

When you were a kid, what were you afraid of? The boogeyman hiding under your bed? The monsters in your closet? Sharks in your swimming pool?

I was afraid of killer bees. Living along the Gulf Coast, I remember watching news reports that they were in Central America, and heading North and expected to arrive by the early 90s.

Those dreadful made-for-tv horror movies didn't help, either. There'd always be a happy family on a picnic, and the clueless mom would spray bug repellent on a bee, and then the rest of the swarm would find out and get really pissed off. Then the carnage would ensue.

I just read this article. Ahhh..they're following me!! How long before they hit the Big Apple?

The articles all say they can't survive temperatures below a certain level, but maybe they've mutated?

Now THAT would be scary.

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
