Never Take Juice From Strangers

Wow, I've had a doozie of a week, ya'll! So, granted the 'stranger' was my boss, but I'm never taking juice unless there is an ingredient label with it.

 

Picture this: The plucky (and devastatingly beautiful) protagonist Lyra goes in to work to do battle against the Hoard Of Rampaging Customers Needing Cake Right. This. Minute when her boss offers her some pineapple juice. Plucky and Sassy Lyra loves pineapple juice so drinks a good 8 oz of it. Everything seems to be going well until her stomach starts cramping up and hives start breaking out in her mouth and on her skin. (Okay, enough of the third person). I went to find the juice container and discovered that there was apple juice listed as an ingredient. Did I mention that I'm highly allergic to apples? Luckily I always carry emergency allergy meds with me but it still about kicked my tail!

 

The moral of the story: Never take juice from strangers. Or people you know. Although I did joke with my boss that if she was trying to kill me so she could hire a younger, prettier cake decorator that I was on to her and that it wasn't going to work!

 

Maybe I should hire some hot, European bodyguards while at work...I could declare it as a business expense on my taxes....*wicked smile*

allergic to apples ? I have never ever heard of anyone being allergic to apples. That is so sad ! I'm allergic to shrimp and lobster (but no other seafood that I've found so far). Usually it's pretty easy to avoid. Imagine being allergic to grass or dust. ouch !

Yeah, it's kinda funny in that all the females in my family are allergic to apples, but none of the males. Each generation seems to be more susceptible to it, though. My grandmother and mother can eat applesauce, but not raw apples while any form of apples makes me break out in at least hives.

I was reading an article last week that there are people allergic to water. Can you imagine that? This one woman breaks out in hives from her own tears or in the shower. Now THAT would suck!

You could call your allergy the Garden of Eden Malady ;-)
