100% Certified Nerd. I've got the allergies to prove it.

Once I was at the doctor and he stuck that flashlighty thing up my nose to have a look. He told me I had an "allergic nose". At that very moment I thought, "Awesome. I wonder if I put that on my resume if it would help me get a computer based job..." I also thought, "Awesome. I AM NEVER GOING TO GET MARRIED."


I digress.

The point is that I have lots of allergies, which never seem to leave me alone. However, I have recently discovered another one and it may have the potential to actually be beneficial! That's right friends, I am allergic to work! No joke!

Over the past few months I have noticed that the frequency of daily sneezes is at an increased rate when I am at the workplace, vs. when I am at home. This is weird, because there are cats in my house which I am TOTALLY allergic to. One would think that I would sneeze more in the presence of a known allergen which causes my eyes to swell up if I touch them and then touch my eye.

AND there are no cats at work. (That is actually the one thing this place really has going for it... NO CATS!)

So why am I sneezing so much at work? Because I am allergic to work, OBVIOUSLY.


You can't argue with science.
