Weekend Plans Post: Allergy Season Is Officially Here
Most parts of the year, you say “hey, I’m feeling a little stuffed up!” and you blow your nose and you feel a lot better. Deep breath. Aaaaaaah.
A handful of other parts, you say “hey, I’m feeling a little stuffed up!” and you blow your nose and you think “maybe I should take a hit of Vicks” and you get some of that sweet, sweet menthol action and you feel a lot better. Deep breath. Aaaaaaaah.
But we’re in the part of the year where I wake up at 3AM with a clogged nose and the thought “well, I should just blow my nose and it’ll be okay” and then it’s back in 20 seconds. Then I think “well, I should just blow my nose and then take a hit of Vicks and it’ll be okay” and then I think “20 seconds? More like 0.2 seconds… I didn’t have time to grab the Vicks!”
And then, 20 seconds later, well, I should just blow my nose and it’ll be okay. Like it didn’t just happen the exact same way 20 seconds ago. Like it’s November or something.
Additional testing is needed but it also might correllate with whether the sun is up. When the sun is up, it’s not as bad. When the sun goes down, WHAMMO. (This might also be due to vertical/horizontal. As I said: additional testing needed.)
(And, no, it’s not the cats. They, or ones very similar to them, have been constant companions since 1998. This is a thing that happens when May flowers.)
I mean, it’s one thing to be stuck inside during a global pandemic. These things happen. But allergies? That’s insult added to injury.
Pardon me, had to take a quick break there to blow my nose.
Anyway, this weekend will be spent doing strategic napping and attempting to catch back up on the sleep stolen by the innumberable buzzing bees in my sinuses. Also: Game Night On Saturday.
So… what’s on your docket?
