Somehow, someway, I've managed to develop a crazy sensitivity to pine nuts. I ate a bunch last week, and now everything I eat tastes weird and metallic. Odd, but survivable, n'est pas?
Except that yesterday, I ate something else -- don't know what yet -- and immediately got itching tongue, lips and mouth, sneezing and runny nose. My antihistamine's got it under control for now, but I need to get to the doctor PDQ.
I hate the idea that I'm developing a *new* allergy at this late date, but that's sure what it looks like. How annoying -- I lurve pine nuts, and they're treating me like a red-headed stepchild. Gah!
