Beekeeping is not a job for most people.

The doctor had already asked what bees she had in the beehives, plus she wasn’t sure

My cousin thought she should take up beekeeping, and she said the bees would be wonderful for the local vegetation plus she could sell the honey! I knew it was a wonderful idea to keep honey bees, although I wasn’t sure our cousin was the right woman to take on this venture. She hadn’t bought the beekeeper’s suit, or the smoker, but someone had given him the beehives. She thought that if she cleaned the beehives, the bees would automatically come to the hives. I sad she would end up with the wrong ‌bees, although she told myself and others I sad too much, two months later, I was working in the emergency department at the local hospital, plus our cousin came in. She had welts all over her body from bee stings. I cleaned all the stings she allowed myself and others to see plus told him to strip plus put on a gown, then when I walked in fifteen minutes later, I had a shot of epinephrine for him, ordered by the doctor. She was lethargic plus kept telling myself and others that bees weren’t supposed to get miserable when you doused them with smoke, but these bees did. The doctor had already asked what bees she had in the beehives, plus she wasn’t sure. She thought she had bought honey bees online, but they had no instruction with them when they arrived. All I could do was shake our head, knowing beekeeping was not a job for most people, plus it was absolutely was not a job for our cousin. She didn’t have an allergic reaction to the bee stings, although she was in a lot of pain for the next couple of days..
