A honeybee’s stinger is made of two barbed lancets. When the bee stings, it can’t pull the stinger back out. It leaves behind not only the stinger but also part of its digestive tract, plus muscles and nerves. This massive abdominal rupture is what kills the bee.
If anyone out there with #dreads can tell me what’s going on with Penelope I would appreciate it. She’s all lumpy and bumpy. The center of the bumps are solid but the outside are almost completely separated from the rest of her. I palm roll her everyday and have started using salt spray to try to roughen her up and tighten. She gets washed once a week with a clarifying shampoo and I try to avoid getting conditioner in her when I wash the rest of my hair. She needs emergency help. She wants a sibling but I’m not going to do another one until I can fix her.
oh what the fuck…wash your hair stop trying to get your hair into matted knots and fucking cut it out
