What you are about to read is entirely irrational. I am not even going to try to justify it.
I don’t know if it is getting older or if it is the mid-Atlantic foliage, but my allergies seem to get worse every year. When I was young I wasn’t allergic to anything. Now I seem to be hypersensitive to outside.
When I went to BlogHer some nice people (I will not mention the company name here because I doubt they would want to be associated with this and it isn’t their fault) gave me a shit ton of free samples of an allergy medicine when they were shutting down their expo booth.
On August 23rd I ran out of my normal allergy medicine and decided to try it.
That wasn’t the crazy part.
This is the crazy part.
Rationally I know these two things are unrelated.
In the first three seconds that it was happening I realized that what I was feeling was an earthquake, but the mind works very quickly and one of my fleeting thoughts that was dismissed before coming to the earthquake realization was that I was having some sort of crazy brain embolism due to this new allergy pill.
Stop rolling your eyes at me. I said I dismissed that option.
Anyway, now I am afraid to take the rest of the free medicine because I am afraid we will have another earthquake.
(You can start rolling your eyes again now.)
Please tell me your irrational fears so that I feel better about myself.
