Where do seasonal allergies come from?

Springtime is here!

Ever wonder where allergies come from? Heh.

Even though it is still pretty cold here in NJ, I know that any minute the flowers and trees will be in bloom. I think this is awesome. Harknell does not. He has the worst allergies! Poor guy! I get allergies too, but they are a little milder than his. If it weren’t for Claritin, he’d have to struggle a lot.

There are other weird types of allergies. For example, I am allergic to most mascaras. I am not sure what specific ingredient I am sensitive to, though. I thought it was parabens, but I think now (judging from some eyeshadows that have caused me a problem) that it might be some sort of pigment. You can’t even rely on so-called “hypo-allergenic” products, because the term is a marketing terms. It only means that the people they tested it on don’t react- not that you won’t.

Seasonal allergies are probably worse because you can’t escape them. Or maybe gluten allergies. I know a lot of people who have gluten allergies. :(

    You know, I’d never thought of pollen that way before, but that’s true. And hysterical, if people with O.C.D. or germophobia read it.

    Here in Georgia, we have a pear tree, I believe to be a Bartlett. When it flowers, it smells horribly like old ejaculate, making this analogy all the worse. I have a friend who lovingly refers to them as, “Oh god, the cum trees are blooming again!”
