I think it means being chicken...or a coward or whatever. Anyways, I'm from the North of Norway and there its too cold for bigger insects like wasps and bees and ugly things that sting you hard. We have mosquitos, plenty huge mosquitos, and some peaceful bumble bees and flies. But not much wasps and bees. So you cant blame me for having this reaction each time one of them tries to get a bit too friendly.
