21 June 2007 — Allergies (6)

Kris has been complaining about her allergies for the past couple of weeks. "They're terrible this year," she says. "It's the worse they've ever been. Aren't yours bothering you?"

No, they're not. In fact, I've quietly been skeptical that this a bad allergy season. Kris talks about it a lot, though. "All the people at work say their allergies are really bad this year. Mine are really bad, too." When we get together with people, she talks about it. "My allergies are really bad this year."

Last night she erupted into a prolonged sneezing fit. I feel for her — I've had bad allergies in the past — but still, I wasn't sure this seasons was especially noxious.

Then I woke up this morning.

As sometimes happens, my allergies came on overnight. I always expect them to hit around July 1st, but their onset is actually variable. One year they didn't hit til August. Apparently the date this year is June 21st. Ugh.

This may be a bad year for allergies.

I never have a problem with allergies... and even I have watery eyes and a sore throat accompanied by sneezing. It's definitely a bad year for allerfies.

Hei JD,
I haven't visit your page in a long time, what is it with the nurse picture on right-top?
Oh I like the part where you talk about teacher, which reminds me teachers in rural island in Indonesia sometimes don't get paid at all.
Hope you get your allergies soon, man, mine just cured! Thank God, I was just about cut my wrist *LOL*

Perhaps you'll both get a little allergy relief when you leave the area on your up coming vacation. Surely there will be different allergens there. One can only hope.

I think Jeff's typo is from leftover Benadryl!
