Alright. Before we get to the tea, we need you to attack that zombie dragon. Now flap over there.

Thanks to everyone who sympathized with my yellow-jacket-bitten ear yesterday. It was surprisingly painful. I'm usually okay with a few bee-stings. I was also bitten in the right forearm and shoulder. The shoulder feels fine, the forearm has a silver-dollar-size welt and itches a little. But the ear still hurts! It hurt so much last night that I had a hard time sleeping. Aleve and Sambuca didn't help much.

It's better today, but it's going to take a while to get back to normal. Stupid yellow-jacket must have bagged the perichondrium, which is pretty close to the surface in the ear. Meanwhile, I also have a cold and feel like death.


In happier news, Fortean Bureau bought my story "Clockwork Dragons Must Die!" It'll be in the September issue. Mmm, clockwork.


KEI

meaning: warn, reproach

警官 == keikan == police officer
警告 == keikoku == (noun which takes 'suru') warning


Bottom radical is 'words/speak' (言). Top radical is yesterday's kanji, 'respect' (敬), which originally mean 'force to speak respectfully', and in this kanji injects the meaning 'warn'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Warn with respectful words.'
