Allergic to everything

21

Spring has arrived. The weather is getting nicer and the new baby animals are in the fields. Everybody is starting to exercise more to get ready for summer and the fields are starting to grow vegetables.

I hate spring. Now, don't judge me just yet because I have a very good reason. In one word: allergies. I am allergic to spring. I have hayfever which blocks my throat and my nose. I spend all day sneezing and rubbing my eyes until they are bloodshot and I can't see anything. I am allergic to the pollen that is in the air so even breathing is difficult.

Springtime for me is about watching other people go to the park and have a picnic while I sit in my room and try to use up as many tissues as possible. Apparently it is also the funniest thing in the world to see someone sneezing constantly for ten minutes. Just ask my girlfriend who gets a laughing fit every time it happens to me! Luckily, she is sympathetic afterwards.

Now, having hayfever is bad. What makes it worse is that I am also allergic to all animals that have fur. That means cats, dogs, horses, even cows! In spring they start to moult, to change their fur. Everywhere I go now with my tissues I end up covered in dog hair or trying to rip off my beard because some cat hair got into it. My face goes very red and I have to scratch it all the time.

So, imagine you are walking down a street and you see a man with a box of tissues. He is sneezing like crazy, scratching his face with one hand and trying to rip off his beard with the other. Still, I guess it is kind of funny when after the tenth sneeze my voice goes really high-pitched like a child.

Spring doesn't like me and I don't like it. Bring on the summer!

Yeah, of course, to four things.
1. Shopping.
2. Dramas on television( especially those with people crying in every single episode!)
3. Crying. People should cry, but not for everything in the world. Like, crying because you didn't get to go out with your friend. It's just so dumb.
4. Celebrities. Seriously, how do people ever become their fans? Celebrity fanism is useless, if you ask me. It tends to spoil you.

Really? Oh. Thanks a lot!!! :)))
But my comments can never be as good as yours. You have a talent for writing. You are like a poet. You attract people with your words. Maybe you just have a lot of experience. Huh, I'm just a young teenager trying to get a remote from my parents by bringing out fake tears. Come on, try, try! :))
Thanks again!

You are so generous, Catastrophe. Always making others smile and wishing them luck. Thanks a lot. By the way, why getting remote from Parents? Try spending more time with them. We, the teenagers, sometimes feel that as things aren't goin the way we planned, nothing is right. And maybe as our parents say things to us in situations like that, we want some space. But we should remember that they love us. So closer to them, closer to happiness. ;))
Stay Blessed. ;)

Welcome, hadia! You're just like me, making others smile with no effect at all! And why get the remote control from parents? Well, if they watch something useful, it isn't my problem. But they sit and watch a really dumb reality show for hours together. And they're not letting me watch cartoons! It's just not fair!!!
I actually wish for a tv-less world, where we can only talk or read to pass time. Wow, that's really great! We get to know each other more. Ha! But only thing is that, I'm going to miss anime! :((( but no probs, I'll get used to it!
Thanks again hadia, your comments are just great! They're motivational and informative, just like you! :)))

Ha ha ha. Thanks. You now, in my home nobody watches TV too much. As, all are grown up and elder than me except my younger brother( who loves to play games. ) So, if I wish to watch it, I watch it. ;) But Dad sometimes say me to let him watch News and etc things but me being Me, I don't let him. But most of the times he wins too. ;)

Wow, you're lucky. Here I'm stuck with two innocent grownups, who are more childish than me, who is a lot childish. We fight over the television, and even I don't watch TV much, only during Sundays. That too only at the afternoon, 'cause that's when new movies and episodes of Beyblade are telecasted. So, mostly I won't let them watch the television at that time. I'm the only child in my home, so the most pampered and naughty! ✌ :))))

However you may quarrel, you still love each other. Warmth and unfathomable love. Siblings are truly a blessing. Can't even think of living witolhout them. Their happiness. Our Happiness. And the most special thing is that jealousy never exists. You feel proud for them. ;)

Wow! I really do wish I had a sib now!! But I'm too old to have one. Never mind, I have my little cousins, and according to me, they're just like sibs! We fight, punch, kick each other, and the next minute we ask sorry and cry in each others arms. Not me, of course, I don't cry much. We are also proud of each other, but sibling rivalry still exists, and you can't change it. Whoa, talking to you always makes me feel how much I miss them. Thanks a lot!!! ✌

Oops. *without. Sorry for the typo.
Well, Exactly!! They are related to us by blood. And cousins ate siblings too. They make us feel the same too. I, too, miss my cousins. It's been quite long since I last met them. ;)

Me too. I just called up my sister, and she's eating ice-cream!! Grrr!!! How much do I hate coughs? My dad had ice-cream two times this week and I didn't get even a scoop!!! It's ridiculous how only kids get cold while grown ups don't!!! Anyways, I should be meeting up with them anytime next week. And, I hope you meet them soon too! They'll be missing you the same as you do. Maybe even more, you're such a cool person. You're worth meeting even if they miss something worthwhile!!! Good luck! ✌

Ha ha ha. Even I think the same!! Only the kids get cold! Why?!.
And thanks for your kind comment. You always make me bashful. More crimson red than the color red itself. ;) You're such a great person through and through. ;)
May God Bless You. ;)

I am treated as a kid. Though I will be turning 18 soon, I am the third in the siblings.
But cold is a thing that loves everyone! And Thanks to Allah, I don't get cold usually, but when it drops by at the door step, it's one of nuisance!
May we all be blessed with health.

Yeah, true. It's like those annoying kids at school, who just wanna be your friends no matter what you tell them. Grrr! Thinking of them just makes me go... Anyways, congrats!! You're soon gonna leave your teen tag, and my mum says that it's the most important part of one's life. It's the day you leave behind childhood and enter adulthood. It's time to leave your innocence behind, and let go of your childhood dreams. Man, I'm dreading that day. I can just do anything but let go of my dreams. They're as important as my parents, to me. Well, okay, congrats again! Now that nine-quarters adult, maybe you can tell me what it is to be one. Please? ✌

Fortunately, I don't have any allergies!
I really feel sorry for those who have allergies to some kinds of food.
They can only eat allergy-free foods and one of my classmates has to take a tailor-made lunch box every day instead of school lunch……
