We learned that some people purposefully get stung to enlarge one's girth, and supposedly for added pleasure.
We often compare phone calls, etc., as we each get some doozie calls and specimens submitted for identification. I have declared her Supreme Winner of Crazy Phone Calls because of the famous wasp call even though we both have ~15 years to retirement.
And I thought my urge to experience a fire ant bite was stupid ... itches like a summabeech for a month, in case you're wondering.
