Bee in Your Bonnet
The phrase 'bee in your bonnet' means to be obsessed with an idea and unable to keep from thinking or talking about it, usually to the annoyance of others.

The earliest found example of the phrase 'Bee in Your Bonnet' is a head full of bees recorded in the Scottish version of Virgil's Aeneid translated by the clergyman and poet Gavin Douglas in 1513. It appears significant that this is Scottish in origin as the word bonnet meant hat or cap in Scotland and was no longer in general usage in England at this point in time.

Use Example - Mary has a real bee in her bonnet about dogs not being on a leash.
