I have grass and ragweed allergies which can be bad but haven't been a big problem this year except that I've been explosively sneezing since winter.When my allergies are bad, I know it’s time to bath the dog. He’s a retired beagle that sleeps with me, but still spends a lot of his day outside, collecting allergens, and shedding throughout the house.
Today I’m coughing here and there. I just got out of the shower, and the doorbell rang. Afraid the dog had broken free(he’s good at escaping), I had to see who was there. Still in a robe, I put on a mask, kept my distance, and opened the door. It was an unmasked meat salesman. I said I was sick in a hoarse voice, and kept coughing. He still wanted to come inside unmasked.
And that is how this thing keeps spreading.
At least I didn't have the itchy watery eyes this year.
