OK, if I was looking for a good excuse to stop when I did, that would be a poor one, but it's true. I was trotting along quite happily, with the summer grasses falling over the path when a small bumblebee flew out in front of me; I moved left, it came with me; I moved right, it came with me, and so it continued for some time.

I eventually gave up, waited and eventually managed to start again.

Hey ho, it's the sort of thing you couldn't make up.

Fantastic run though.

  • I shall keep that excuse in the bag to pull out when needed lol!!

  • Haha loved it. One once hitched a lift on my shoulder I didn't even know it was there, it must have thought all its birthdays had come at once when it landed on my bright pink top, bbbzzzzz pollen, bbbbzzzzzz!!. Hubby took it out into the back garden where there are plenty of pollen shrubs :)

  • Ha ha, doing the bee quickstep. Great excuse for stopping, love it :)

  • This made me smile. Perhaps the bee was trying to keep up with you? :-)

  • Me thinks that would 'bee' the other way round!!

  • Oh dear. Pity it wasn't behind you as you may have smashed your PB ;)

  • The only PB I would have smashed would have been Peanut Butter!!

  • Lol. Not a bad alternative :)

  • brilliant....the worst is when a fly ( or god forbid) a bumblebee goes straight down your throat and chokes you...doesn't help that I run with my mouth open so I can actually breathe!!! Sounds like you had fun though :)

  • Great fun thanks ~ not sure what to call the dance, but it certainly has a sting in the tail!

    A bee in the mouth sounds really painful. My wife's parents' dog died from that.
