Bee Battle

Last night, I was completely minding my own business.  Relaxing with a glass of pino enjoying the warm spring breeze from my balcony.     
scene of the crime
When all of a sudden, completely out of the blue an intruder flew into my apartment.   

A ginormous, angry looking bee with every intention to rock my world.    

Immediately I jumped up and hid in the corner.  The big guy went straight for my ceiling fan, flying from light to light.  I knew it was only a matter of time until he fell to the ground, so I waited patiently in the corner.
Planning my attack. 

Once the beast dropped to the floor, I sprung into action. 
The closet object to me was a big picture frame, so this became my trusty weapon/shield.

I dropped the frame on the beast and it started SCREAMING, literally making loud crying noises.
it was very strange/creepy/scary/annoying
I lifted the frame and saw him laying there, then to my surprise he started MOVING.  What.the.hell.

Obviously, I didn’t know who I was messing with.  I dropped the frame again and so began the noises.
This routine continued for the next 15 minutes.  Frame, Noises, Movement, Repeat

He wasn't going to give up without a fight. 

I needed a different approach.  I grabbed a shopping bag and covered the bee.  Slowly i closed it around him so I could pick him up. He went CRAZY.

I paced around my apartment not knowing how to kill this horribly mean beast 
I just wanted him out.
So, I opened the door and threw the bag/bee devil off the balcony.
  I know, I littered.  But it was worth it.  I had no other choice. 
Bee 1, Chelsea 0

He better let his insect friends know I’m a force to be reckoned with.

You got away this time bee… but next time you won’t be so lucky.
   Next time, I'll be prepared and you will have to answer to my little friend:

one time, we had a snake in our back yard and my mom decided to kill it by just running over it with her car and it wouldn't die and the car ended up staying on top of the snake for like 3 days before it actually died.

beasts like bees and snakes are scary! glad ya didn't get stung!
