“Why do the most beautiful seasons of the year carry this horrible stuff that makes me so miserable?  Spring and fall, I sneeze until I just want to die!  Pollen!  Awful stuff!”  And Violet sneezed  again into her already soggy tissue.  Her eyes watered, her head ached, her sinuses dripped.

“Well, I suppose we could find a desert and go live where there isn’t any pollen.  I hear there aren’t as many allergens, for instance, in the deserts of Utah or Arizona.”

“Oh but then I’d miss my beautiful roses!”

“Right. I’ll get more tissue.”

  1. Linda, this was very true to life and so often when you hear someone complaining about something, they really have no intention to change the situation but they do need to vent…and possibly taken Claratine.
    Funny you should mention sinus problems because I’ve had the most dreadful headache for the last two days and my eyeballs ached along with my face and head. It’s been excruciating. I didn’t know what was going on until I blew my nose and an alien flew out. That was pretty scary too. Back onto antibiotics and I’m not dying after all.
    Hope you have a great weekend.
    Best wishes,
