Stung By A Jellyfish


So it was a fun day at the beach. I was swimming with family, and feeling the sand beneath my feet. As I was on my back in the water, floating in the sun. I suddenly got stung. My cousin said. “oh it is just a piece of kelp.” She laughed, but I knew better. I began to swim closer to shore. I knew to get away from what stung me before it came back for more.  Time passed on and I enjoyed the rest of the day, of the end of my South Beach Miami Spring Break. The next morning when I woke up in bed I realized it was no mistake. It was a jellyfish after all. A maniwar or blue box had stung me with one testicle for sure. This one distinctive line with its testicle shape. Is proof of my encounter with a jellyfish sting.
