Other Allergies

Marzipan, Jane Austen movies, Mitt Romney, fake sugar, Nancy Kerrigan, aphorisms, auto-flush toilets that flush before or when you sit on them, Olivia Newton John singing Just Call Me Angel of the Morning, maraschino cherries, Mr. Rogers, floats, parades, state fairs, Richard Gere, 4:00 in the afternoon, fine print, cough syrup, nylons, rhinestones, doctor's offices, tissue paper gowns, the word:share as when someone says I just want to share a little secret with you, like the time this woman in a public restroom shared with me that she used hemorrhoid cream on her face to get rid of those fine lines . . . It works like a charm.

Let's see now. I think I'm just getting warmed up.

I "share" your 4 p.m. allergy.
Alas, sometimes the only thing that seems likely to make the rash go away is an entire bottle of maraschino cherries.

I like Jane Austen movies.

Romney is scary.

i hate marschino cherries. they remind me of cough medicine. that's about as brilliant as i can be today, i'm afraid.

I always drape a piece of tp over the sensor on those toilets when my Gabi is using them. They scare the bejeezus out of her. One really conscientious mom I know carries sticky notes for this purpose.
