at THE PLAZA....
(new mugs by Gary Rith.... groovy different styles, hmm?)
I was at the allergist Wednesday getting a few tests. When I was a kid the doctor did the allergy test "he is allergic to everything" which is not too helpful, really, as you get older. It is like "now what?". One "what" seems to be throwing drugs at them, but I resist that as much as I can. What about behavior and habit changes where you can? I am pretty flippin' healthy, HUGELY healthy actually and feel good. I live with cats and dogs, and whereas my nose has run my whole life, etc, not bad in recent months. I tell the doctor I think that my allergies are nearly all gone, except for food problems, allergies schmalergies!
Anyway, if you know an allergy test, it involves covering you back with little pricks containing allergens, like maple, ragweed, cat, dog.
The nurse covers my back with 43 of these.... "whoopsie, that is your cat!" she goes gleefully... and dog and trees (plant pollens) and molds and dusts.... severely allergic to most on the list, allergic to everything. So much for allergies schmalergies... BUT, the doctor theorizes that my food allergies might be connected to pollen allergies. That is why you go to experts--who would have guessed that a strawberry or pineapple allergy is related to tree pollens?
ANYWAY, like I say, I am healthy as can be, but what do I dream???? I dream I am at The Plaza hotel in NY, and they serve toast and foods I have to avoid and... I eat them all. Then I spend the rest of the dream wondering "uh oh, what will happen...." . Kinda fun having tea at The Plaza, though :) Have an awesome Thursday!
