Do you know what they say about the grass is always greener on the other side? Or here’s another one – be careful what you wish for? Yeah, I think I stepped four hooves right into this problem. I wanted Spring. Spring is here. The weather is warmer than Winter… there’s a nice breeze outside… the birds are chirping… the grass is green. What could be wrong you ask?
Yep, that six lettered dirty word – POLLEN. In the south, it’s bad. I mean really bad. Today’s forecast:
Total Pollen Count for 4/11/2014: 4054
That’s really high. That means everything is yellow… or like mom calls it pollinated. The itchy, watery eyes. The sneezing. The can’t breathe because your throat is full of pollen. And, you can taste it. Really, you can. Who wants to go outside and roll around in the grass with all of this out there? Perhaps I should have been more specific with Mother Nature about Spring? Daddy has to wear a mask outside when he ventures out. Between us – he kind of looks like a human wearing a snout – snorts. And snouts – I’m not going out in my magical backyard until this pollen goes away. I don’t care how much the unicorn and bigfoot plead for to come play.
Do you have pollen? Are you a sufferer? They say it will last for a couple of weeks until everything ‘blooms’. Until then, welcome to Sprinollen… yep that’s what I’m going to call it.
