My allergies have been wreaking havoc for a good 3 weeks now. Insane wind blowing around lots of pollen and crap. I’m all stuffed up. My eyes are itching, sometimes I even feel a little wheezy. It doesn’t help that I spent 4 hours this weekend outside at baseball games.
No lie, this looks like me right now.
I’ve tried all kinds of decongestant drugs. I’ve tried saline spray. I’ve taken all kinds of OTC allergy things. I’ve even tried those pressure point things. I look more than a little ridiculous when people walk by my cube and I’m trying those out. Hold for 4-5 minutes each? Are you freaking kidding me?
So far, the only thing that works is Afrin, which is bad because you are only supposed to use that stuff for 3 days max. Rut-Roh. I may have to go to Afrin rehab. Maybe I’ll meet Lyndsay Lohan there. I have a feeling she will be gone before I get there though.
So to my co-w0rkers, I’m sorry for all the grossness. I apologize for the sneezing, sniffing, snarfing, blowing of the schnoz, the coughing up a lung, the clearing of the throat, the nasally sounding talking and my lack of being able to completely hear you with my stopped up ears. It’s gross, I know. No one wants the never-ending beak bugling to be over than me. I promise I’m washing my hands, using hand sanitizer and tissues (not all in that order). On the plus side, I’m not hocking a lugie AND I’m not walking around looking like this……yet:
