   I was demolishing a chimney in a tight attic space when my prybar accidentally split a hive twice that size. I immediately received 50 to 75 stings from paper wasps.

    I pulled my jacket over my head and laid low for 2 min. and then made a run for it as they pursued. The neighbor of this property which I was working at was allergic and had an EpiPen for such occasions. They made some coffee and we waited to see if I would have an adverse reaction to so many stings. My heart rate went up a bit but an hour later it became clear that I was fine.

   Laying facedown in insulation waiting for something like that to pass causes one to examine the merits of this line of work.
