I’m Allergic to Tree Sex

Pollen Balls of Pain

So it turns out that my immune system is so bored with itself, it looks for other things to fight with like tree pollen. Granted, pollen looks like little balls of spiky doom. But what the fuck, immune system, what have you got against trees having sex? They give us air, they look pretty, just leave the pollen alone! It doesn’t really hurt me if I inhale some tree sperm. Just let it be!

Allergies don’t make any sense to me. As I get older, my reaction to the maple pollen seems to get worse. And yet I’m no longer allergic to cats as evidenced by the cat I now own. Maybe I didn’t eat enough dirt as a toddler.

Thanks for all the well wishes!
