Wasp Sting...........quick fix........

So what do you do when you get stung by a wasp and have nothing to put on it?  

Grab a copper penny.  It has to be copper, not a new one.   Just hold it on the sting a while. I have used this idea twice now.  A few years ago a red wasp popped me at a retreat.  I tried the penny.  It worked.  Yesterday at the park a yellow jacket got me.  I was hunting in my fanny pack for a penny.  A friend offered me one, thinking I was nutty.  In just a few minutes it stopped stinging.  This morning it was a tiny pus pocket which I popped and cleaned with peroxide.  No itch.

How does this prove you aren't nutty?

Where would you find a copper penny in 2011?
