5 times! this is my first time to feel the pain this little fellow can give. i was mowing the yard today and brushed a tree limb out of the way and apparently there was an asp on the branch that landed on my thigh. well.......i did not realize this until i grinded it into my arm unknowingly about 5 times.. my arm felt as if is was on fire ... i was wondering if it was something on the freaking branch that was causing my discomfort but it turns out it was an asp. asps can go to hell. i've been stung 10 times by yellowjackets at one sitting and i would welcome that compared to this damn asp. asps suck!
