First off, Happy MLK day!  Now, on with my misery…

I never used to have allergies as a kid.  Never.  I remember kind of laughing at all the allergy sufferers I would see.  Well, I’m not laughing anymore.  I am one of them now.  And I have no idea how it happened. Is that part of life?  Does your immune system start to break down in a way that it allows for allergies to slap you around?  I may have missed the memo on this.

What sucks is that I am a “warm weather” person.  I live in San Antonio, I was born in Hawaii, and my family is from Costa Rica.  Tropical, humid weather is in my blood.  So naturally I despise cold weather.  But this is where the conflict comes in.  If the weather stays cold, my allergies don’t seem so bad.  But when it hits about 65 degrees, then I am miserable.  Damn, this sucks.  My eyes are watering.  My throat is raw. I’m congested.  But, hey.  Who’s complaining?

And then there is the case of allergy medicine.  I can’t find one that works consistently.  Allegra is as effective as a Tic-Tac.  Claritin D?  No dice.  If you have any suggestions, please send them my way.  Or Kleenex.  Feel free to send Kleenex my way too.

  • If you're a horse, and someone gets on you, and falls off, and then gets right back on you, I think you should buck him off right away.
