Allergies mystify me. It seems a little counterintuitive to think that the human immune system can develop hypersensitivities to otherwise innocuous natural substances. Or at least a healthy immune system: allergies are systemic disorders. Which means that when an otherwise healthy human develops allergies later in life (like I have), it's natural selection at work, attempting to weed out the sub-par specimens from the population. I am being targeted right now. Nature is sniping me.
My pitiful defense against these relentless, ancient, implacable evolutionary forces is a tiny cloud of vaporized fluticasone proprionate. And some DEET.
Camping this weekend is going to be so much fun.
