I’m thirty-seven years old. I’ve known about my seafood allergy since I was probably three-years-old or so. You would think that by now I would have learned about staying out of places where there’s seafood. Like work cafeterias on Fridays during Lent. I ended up just getting a bottled soda out of fear of cross-contamination. Unfortunately the line for the register was right up to the hot food counter/grill, which meant the smell of fish was pretty strong. Yes, I am that allergic. I’ve taken a half dose of Benadryl and will now spend the rest of the day hoping that it doesn’t give me The Streetcorner Nods.
