I had to come home early today on account of my allergies. It was pretty unbearable. I took something for them this morning but it doesn’t always work—especially on a day like today (33 °C with poor air quality). I was able to get a few things done in between blowing my nose and sneezing. Poor me.

When people ask me what I’m allergic too I typically say “Canada. In the summer.”

That’s not really true of course, although I believe I am allergic to the pollen of most trees native to Ontario (plus a few other plants). I don’t get them all summer either—just for a few days when the weather gets warm. I’ve learned to just ride them out.
