Saying Hello to Steve

“Hey, Jeff. How are you?”

“I’m good.”

“It sounds like you have a cold.”

“Oh. No. It’s, umm . . .,” for some reason while hesitating, I pointed off toward the street, “uh, allergies.”

Steve had a puzzled look on his face. He was trying to work out the connection between allergies and the direction I was pointing in.

“. . . I guess I’m pointing at the pollen.”

“Okay.”

(I blame the allergy medicine – “Drowsiness may occur. Excitability may occur, especially in children. Be careful when driving a motor vehicle or operating machinery.”)
