Most Painful Insect Bites and Stingsseminolesinger2003
The Contenders: Page 2
An odd, distressing pain.
Tiny blowtorches kiss your arms and legs.
A cotton swab dipped in habanero sauce has been pushed up your nose.
Instantaneous, like the surprise of being stabbed.
Is this what shrapnel feels like?
Like a cut on your elbow, stitched with a rusty needle
It's pain at first sight.
Like poison ivy or oak, the more you rub, the worse it gets.
Rude and insulting.
An ember from your campfire is glued to your forearm
Size matters, but it's not everything.
A silver tablespoon drops squarely onto your big toenail, sending you hopping
Like nightfall following a day at the beach, but you forgot the sunscreen.
Your burned nose lets you know.
Like a skinny bully's punch.
It's too weak to hurt you, but you suspect a cheap trick might be coming.
Itchy with a hint of sharpness.
A single stinging nettle pricked your hand
Light, ephemeral and almost fruity.
A tiny spark has singed a single hair on your arm.
Imagine getting up out of bed, and you drank your coffee, but it tasted so bitter it hurt your mouth.
Its sting is clever, but trivial.
Like magic, in which you cannot quite figure out the difference between pain and illusion.
Sharp meets spice.
A slender cactus spine brushed a buffalo wing before it poked your arm.
It bites you, and then it sprays formic acid.
Which burns tissue.
Therefore you're being burned alive by the ant.
It's like when your oven mitt had a hole in it when you pulled the cookies out of the oven.
Like biting into a habanero pepper, it burns.
Any of you knowing this will realize getting stung by a red bull ant is like stepping on a Lego.
And it's less painful than a honeybee.
It's like a dog bit you in a sensitive spot.
