I don't know if it was the change of scenery or just my old age, but I now have allergy problems. I have a pretty regular regimen of Allegra, Benadryl and Afrin nasal spray on hand, to help get me through the allergy spikes.
But... I have noticed something odd about my allergies. I'm not allergic to the regular stuff. Not cats, not pollen, not ragweed, not dust.
I'm allergic to Idaho.
I know, I know, haha, but hear me out.
With my day job, I travel to states like Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Nevada and Oregon. In other states, my sinuses are fine. No sneezing, no watery eyes, no allergy spikes.
It's only when I'm in Idaho do I suffer from these symptoms.
And it's 'more than usual' when I'm home.
Maybe I'm allergic to my wife? Maybe she's the problem? (I can feel her glaring at me, just by typing these words...)
I really do need to see a doctor, to find out what the underlying problem really is. Until then, I can just chuckle to myself and tell everyone I'm allergic to Idaho.
(...because that will get me in less trouble than telling people I'm allergic to my wife...)
