I want to be better with wasps, but I seem incapable. They seem to want to enter my ears, the noise is intolerable, the urge to flail and flee and prevent their entrance is irresistible. I tried putting my hands over my ears, muted ignorance, I know they're there but I don't seem to care so much as I can't hear the damn things. Then I see the look of horror on my companion's face, the pointing and the silent shouting, it looks bad, is it crawling down my shirt? I remove my hands and loud as you like revert to flailing panic. Damn things.
