The Gentle Honey Bee

Apicurious adj. \ā-pē-kyu̇r-ē-əs\: 1. Interested in learning everything about apis mellifera, the gentle honey bee. 2. Marked by a giddy, persistent euphoria recurring every spring and summer. Strongly correlated with a tendency to peer inside insect-filled boxes for hours on end, muttering about a "laying pattern" and "those damned varroa". Symptoms include sticky fingers with semi-permanent orange stains, a smoky smell in hair and clothes, and excessively large open tabs at beekeeping supply stores. Warning: This is an incurable condition that may require treatment. Exercise extreme caution.
