Sigh. So I had a nice little post planned for last night that I planned on working on after getting home from a lovely birthday dinner for one of my friends.
Unfortunately instead I spent the night in bed with my eye swollen a la Will Smith in Hitch. I’m bringing sexy back.
This eye thing (along with shortness of breath and feeling like I might hurl) have happened once before a few months ago. And I was reminded that both times I was around shrimp. So with the power of Facebook, Dr. Google and of course Hitch, I have determined I am allergic to shellfish.
Thankfully this isn’t much of a bummer since I don’t, in fact, eat shellfish. Shrimp totally gross me out. They are the cockroaches of the sea. But since both times I had the reaction I didn’t actually eat any, I am thinking I need to be careful even being around it. And I REALLY should avoid picking them up and rubbing them on my eye.
So no shrimp for me. Thankfully I have no reaction to chocolate, ice cream wine or Novella. Actually I have been noticing some major swelling around the waistline. Not sure it that is related…….
