OMG, how right you are. God forbid someone asks me about them - I look for the 'tell-tale' glazed eyes about half an hour into my speech. Last week, someone in the pub was silly enough to ask me how many queens were there in a hive... she walked off with boredom in the end (I think I carried on talking though).

HWMBO makes a flashing light signal with his hand on top of his head. This apparently means "beebore beebore beebore." Unfortunately my friends have started doing it too.
