Wasps

Wasps, horrible creatures with wings aren’t they?I used to fear them but now I just pure hate them. I have never been stung by a wasp but I imagine it would be painful because it’s not like sticking a pin in your leg , it’s like putting a slightly venomous pin in your leg. And usually a wasp sting is unjustified unlike a bee sting which kills the bee and so usually bees only do it as a last resort whereas wasps sting anyone or anything.

I am telling you all this because I have had a very funny encounter with wasps lately. My friend gave me some sweets and I didn’t really like them,they were okay but they had fallen all out my bag and got dirty. I was tidying up and I had these sweets and I didn’t know what to do with them so without thinking about it I put them on my window ledge because my window was open at the time later I shut the window forgetting they were out there. A few days later I was undoing the curtains and I noticed a few wasps eating these sweets I’d left out a lot of sweets and there were hardly any left!

 They were fighting over these sweets and were acting like they were glued to the sweets. It was quite scary, I wanted to check whether the window was closed properly because I didn’t want wasps inside. I wondered how long it would take them to finish them and so through out the day i mentally checked

a) the amount of sweet left

and

b) the number of wasps at one time

At one point I counted 7 wasps outside my window also I noted that a wasp had died for some of it becacause I saw this little adomen ( and if you don’t know what part the abdomen is,here’s a diagram )

By the next morning all the sweets were gone and considering they were eating food the same size as their whole body they were pretty fast! You’d think they’d get sick of it and give up.  So wasps may be very ugly, very creepy , whatever but no one can deny that they aren’t impressive…

How did I do on this piece let me know below, on your page or at italkblog@yahoo.co.uk Please note how I have taken advice and it’s an easy colour to read and will be from now on. What are your thoughts on wasps ? Have you ever been stung by one? And what do you think about my wasp tempting?

Jack Wills

Jack Wills is a high street designer label in Britain.The common age range is high school teens to university
age.Being designer Jack Wills is very costly,the dresses are perhaps better value compared to other designers but the t-shirts,underwear ect. are way up at the top of the market. I am not sure as to whether I like this preppy shop for a few reasons against and a few reasons for.The shop has a beautiful interior which makes it feel old,the one I’m nearest to, has a very vintage interior with old books sitting dustily and snugly on shelves and an old green chair sits near the changing rooms.Along with the simple gold lettering on the black outline of the shop. it feels homely and very british.
The clothes can kill you,they are so beautiful and quality and preppy but not frumpy.They pull off the whole preppy british country girl, british country girl goes swimming, british country girl goes clubbing,goes riding,goes jogging,sitting,standing,walking. The window usually has a starch white mannequin that you wish was you styling a breathtaking dress or outfit or something that catches you like a gaping goldfish.
However the beauty has a downside according to me.It’s the same with all designers but where I live I feel that Jack Wills has it worse;peer pressure. More and more teens are ignoring what clothing style they really like to deck themselves from head to toe in the brand.And the stuff they buy is usually the stuff that plainly says Wills or JW something that will easily show that they have spent a lot of money on a designer brand.Which leads me to say that this peer pressure has its advantages,pressurised peers will buy branded clothes and walk around feeling great but they will be advertising to other teens to go to a store because it will help them fit in. Like a complicated version of a man in a hot dog outfit.
Don’t ask me how much I’ve bought there because as I said before I’m a looker,not a buyer and I’ve only discovered it recently so….I have bought a bag (on sale for a good price),a wills highlighter,two wills pens and a JW bracelet.4 out of 5 of those things had problems,so to avoid others falling in the cheap goods trap,I need and want to share these problems.I spent £10.50 in Jack Wills buying the highlighter,pens and bracelet.The first problem I had happened a minute out of the shop when I realised that the bracelet popper was so warped it didn’t stay on properly,I didn’t want to tell my dad because I know he would lecture me on how bad Jack Wills is.Added to that I didn’t want to go back and return it because the lady who’d served me had been so nice and it would have embarrassed me to be picky.The bracelet doesn’t stay on and so far I have only lost it at a friend’s house like 4 times but the day is coming when I will drop it in the street and the £6.50 I spent will have gone. The next problem happened a week later when the ink in my pens started coming out patchy and intervals of the ink flow.The third problem was with the highlighter.It took ages for the highlighter to malfunction taking 20 days.The highlighter had WILLS at the top end and the WILLS just erroded away also I found at times the ink falters so I guess it will run dry soon. That £10.50 was just gone the money had been burnt on cheap accessories.The moral of this story is spend a lot of money on good quality items.
So I have told you my rather confused opinion on the outfiters to the gentry but what do you think?Tell me your thoughts about Jack Wills,your stories about Jack Wills and tell me how you think my writing was.Either do it below or on your page. Susie xx
