Drabble: An Ode to Allergies

by Paul Fischer

This is my 3rd drabble:


I love pollen. Mold and mildew make me smile. Dust covers every inch of my house. Allergy season is a greatly anticipated joy for me. The way my sinuses swell up like balloons, the way my head feels like a brick, it is glorious to behold.

I used to hate allergies. I used to rant and scream and compose tirades lashing out at this wonderful little mechanism of biology. Until the day I sneezed so violently the sniper’s bullet passed clean over my head. Allergies truly are the stuff of life. Is it any wonder I love them so much?
