There's a fly in every pot of ointment, a horrible burnt bit in every packet of corn flakes, a nasty snotty bit in every bowl of blancmange...what am I on about? Summer of course. Wait, wait hang on! I'm not whinging, I love summer (or this close approximation we're having this week) but the only niggle is that there is very runny watery stuff coming out of my nose and drizzling on my keyboard. Now I'm not whinging, in fact I'm stuffing bogroll up each nostril, but it's making me wonder; Is Hayfever a new thing? Because it's extremely bad sitting here in my office, what would it be like if I was a Victorian farmer?! Just imagine standing in a field all day trying to scythe the corn when your eyes are swollen up like two life boueys and your nose is runnier than an easter egg in the arm pit? Perhaps it's one of those more common occurences that we've bred into ourselves through the use of medicines, cleaning products and the like? Hmm interesting (well I think it is, it's also irritating, my fingers keep skidding off the snotty keys).
Anyway that's the thought for today; can you sycthe with your eyes closed? I'm off to research hayfever, and possibly to find two nostril corks.
