I understand that Mr Bee-Mason might have had his hands a little full at the time of the initial sting, but you would think that once the deafness set in you would remember the bee in your ear earlier.
I don’t think much of the doctor either, did he even look in the ear or was he just guessing?
Mr. J.C. Bee-Mason has a great name for a bee-keeper, doesn’t he? A mason can be a name for a member of a widespread secret organization. Could a Bee-Mason be another name for a person who understands the secrets of bees?
