I had an appointment earlier this evening. When it was over (6:00 p.m.), I came to the house and went to the backyard to water the flower garden. After I did that, I decided to sit on my deck for a little bit and take in a bit of the baseball game going on next to me.
I only sat on the deck for a half hour. It was hot out there but that wasn’t the issue. Aside from the heat, after a half hour, my eyes began watering, I began sneezing and coughing and wheezing, and I was a mess. So, I came indoors. The sneezing and coughing continued and then I had a massive nosebleed. These darn allergies! All from a half hour outside.
And the worst part of all of that is that I knew better. Yes. I knew better than to do what I did but I did it anyway. We’ll see what happens to me later this week when I sit outside for hours at the information booth of the festival. I’m not even going to try to predict. I’ll just keep using plenty of eye drops and cough drops.
