A snippet from a conversation from this morning:

Bradley: It's been 10 minutes! Anything, yet?

Me: Nope. No allergic reaction.

Bradley: Are you sure? How do you know for sure?

Me: My eyes would look swollen and my chest would feel tight. You'd be able to tell just by looking at me.

Bradley: (with much chagrin) Aw, man.

Isn't he sweet.

Backstory: I tried out a new pain medication this morning. I'm sadly allergic to ibuprofen (she once was my best friend). We weren't sure if this would have similar results, so I prepared the kids and said they might get to go to a friend's house if I swelled up like a Macy's balloon. No such luck.

I'm glad you didn't have an allergic reaction! As for this dieting thing....it just ain't happening for me right now! Bummer!

I would have loved to see a picture of your reaction! When did that happen?

On Amy's comment - I think that must be my problem. I am alergic to water, I blow up like a Macy's Day balloon when I drink any.

I Want to Hear From You!
