Fighting the good fight

What once was a beautiful and harmonious relationship has ended in a ugly divorce.
No one wins.

I think the bees in the dominican have excommunicated me and are out for blood. It is getting ridiculous. Every single morning several bees fly into our window and swirl around, obviously pissed. I have never seen anything like it. I am usually not one for violence but passive resistance is impossible with these creatures. We have bug killer and I go to town with it. I have killed 10-20 bees in the last week but some are quite clever and hijack me by sitting on my clothes for up to ten minutes before stinging me. They have an agenda. Caitlin thinks I am losing it but those bees know about the challenge and they aren't pleased. I'll keep you posted as I fight for my life.

Day 4- Massive struggle to not put sugar or fake sweetener in coffee... Got my sugar fix from bananas and peanut butter and peanuts and raisins. These are my sugar life lines. I think I'm doing ok so far but I am quickly becoming wildly addicted to Caffeine. That challenge might need to start very soon.
Day 5- Coffee without milk or sugar. Puts hair on your chest unless you are naked mole rat like me. Then it does nothing. Resisted honey in my peanut butter several times to the obvious displeasure of the neighborhood bees.

I have never seen anything like this. It is a full on war JP v. Bees. I think they want revenge for the truckloads of honey he has consumed over the years.
