Oddity of the day: There are several people in my neighborhood that walk their dogs in the morning. This morning, 2 of them 'met' going opposite directions, both with 2 dogs on leaches. Neither was willing to shorten the leads, nor move to the other side of the road (no sidewalk, so one guy was going the wrong way).

The 'crash' resulted in a tangle of dogs sniffing butts.



They don't normally do the butt sniff?
Rusty still wants to smell every dog we meet. Except for the ones I know he has trouble with.

Maybe? It was more funny because the men walking them clearly didn't want to stop and let the dogs greet each other, but also refused to move so they didn't get tangled up.

That just seems so odd. I just can't see people getting flustered about that sort of thing here.

I don't think so. We're having d-i-l's birthday this Sunday and I'm having the kids bring up all the Christmas decorations, including the tree. I have card club at my house in Dec. so everything has to be done by then. Also I have New Year's this year, so the extended family will be here. And I need to get to PA another weekend before Christmas. Fingers crossed that there's going to be a weekend without snow forecast.

We don't have any gluten issues, although my aunt has celiacs.

I think the article under that is more interesting

Good morning. Was going to do a lot of running around today, but woke up with my back hurting in one discrete spot, the same spot that hurts when my back goes out. So I think I'm just going to take an Aleve and sit tight today. Got work to do.

I get annoyed when they correct use of the term. I know what I have is Technically a sensitivity. But if I call it that people dismiss it as being important, but call it an allergy (something that they know can cause hospitalization) and they might try not to trigger it.
I don't care how allergists feel about it. That word is short hand for "that substance causes me physical harm, so don't bring that substance around me." Whether or not the reaction is caused by your immune system attacking a protein.

AMEN!!! I am chemically sensitive. It makes more since to most people to say I am 'allergic' to chemicals. They kind of understand that concept.

On a different note - dad doesn't have an infection. No idea why his urine has a slight greenish tint. It was clear when the nurse took the sample, it is back full of sediment today. who knows!

On a totally different note I do NOT like pointed tweezers to try and pluck chin hairs. slanted are my favor followed by straight ended, but definitely not pointed. What a horrible idea. What are pointed tweezers good for anyway?

I understand. I'm "sensitive" to codeine. And it was progressive. The last time I took it, I had about a half teaspoon before I went to bed and it was 2:00 the next afternoon before I felt safe to drive. Just felt like a bubble off. The doc called disoriented. Although there is some kind of manufactured codeine I can handle.

there was a cooking competition show that changed things on the chefs at the last min. In one episode it was surprise, one of the guests is allergic to shrimp, an ingredient all were using.

One had the nerve to say 'ohno, that isn't a Hail Mary allergy like gluten, I have to take it seriously.'
I'm sorry but do you need the person who reacts to it to come back the next day and have explosive diarrhea over your kitchen for you to get a clue and not feed people things they shouldn't eat?

Diet? Asparagus can do that, maybe he now has trouble fully digesting one of his regular veggies.

Pointed are for pulling things out of wounds. Less surface so you can get in tighter spaces.

I think husband's going to drive tomorrow. It's been two days since he's had a Tramadol. Of course, after the PT tomorrow, he may take some.

Is gluten actually an allergy? While I wouldn't call it a "Hail Mary allergy" I don't think you are very likely to die from it, like you would be with certain severe allergies.

If someone isn't smart enough to not feed people things they are going to have an adverse reaction to, or have moral religious objections to, they shouldn't cook food.

Still single, can't imagine why.
