Think those wasps are out to get you? You may be right.

Growing up I was surrounded by paper wasps nests. There was this one nest in particular at the rear of my neighbor’s house. I would have sworn when I was little that they reacted differently to different people. But then I thought nah, they’re just bugs and it must either be a coincidence or my overactive imagination.
