When I Create My Own World . .


there will be NO allergies. As I stood in the bathroom getting ready for bed this evening I realized that I may have an addiction . . . to breathing. I started with not one, but two different kinds of nasal spray because, according to my allergist Asteline and Flonase actually work better together. I then moved onto the ear drops that look suspiciously like skim milk for the ear infection I have. Again, thanks to the allergies. Sidebar: who gets ear infections in their 30's anyway? After that, it's the eye drops for those dry, bloodshot eyes (you guessed it .. allergies). And finally, it was the Xyzal and the cough syrup so that I could get through the night without coughing my lungs up - that one I blame on a combination of a cold, the inversion and yup, the allergies. So standing there staring at my pathetic arsenal of medication I realized that I put something in every possible place that I could in order to get a handle on these allergies. Seriously? Should breathing really be that complicated? I think not. So, as I said before. When I create my own world there will be no allergies.

Oh, that and there will be tiny Pegasus that fly around like birds (because no one wants horse poop on their windshield) and poodle sized giraffe that will make excellent pets.

When you have your own world, I think I will just have to come and live there so I can have a tiny pegasus and a giraffe too! Do you mind if I bring Brady? He can be very entertaining.

I have a cold of my own that I also blame on the inversion and allergies. Hope you get will soon, Hon.

p.s. Frankenstein is one of my all-time favorite books. I'm assuming it's a re-read for you, with the amount of books you've read. We must both be morbid :D

I want in on your world.
