They say what doesn't kill us....

...make us stronger.

OK , I'll agree...

somewhat..

I think I'm pretty strong...

After all, like my button says, "I've survived damn near everything"...

But this silly allergy-thingy is getting to me ....

Did you know "allergies" have a look?

Yeah, and it's not pretty.

My eyes, usually rather round and happy, are squinty little things that run and burn and look like they are cracked.

My nose, one of my best features if I do say so myself, is drippy, suffocating, red and snuffely.

Which make me wonder, who would put a drippy thing right over your mouth?? I know HE doesn't make mistakes....But, still I wonder...

And, when I get sick, my HAIR gets weird. It's bent. And smooshed. And has a mind of it's own.

And I whistle. When I breathe. I whistle through my nose.

Laugh if you will....

But remember, I'm on the phones all day and it can get hard to explain who is whistling in the background when they are trying to order our papers.

Allergy medicine, you say??

Even the one's that say "non-drowsy" make me sleepy. I've rehearsed some good excuses for why I have fallen asleep on my keyboard.....

"they said this might happen when I gave blood this morning..." Or " I was just listening to a humming coming from the keyboard....can you hear it??...."

Oh well. Such is life. So I'll make some hot tea. wear some warm comfy clothes to work and try to elicit as much sympathy as I can get.

After all, what doesn't kill us make us stronger....and whinier.
