I felt a fluttering around my belly button last night sitting at my desk, but it didn't seem right to be a mosquito, so I looked. It was a honeybee, which I definitely would not have wanted to kill. And if I had swatted before looking, I probably would have ended up with a well-earned bee sting on my belly button.
So the bee and I both came out the better. In many things, it pays not to lash out in haste!
