I’m allergic to lettuce. It’s a very mild allergy, but I’m allergic to lettuce. Which is stupid, because as one person said, “It’s just crispy water; how can you be allergic to that?!”
Other stupid allergies include pecans but not peanuts, shrimp but no other shellfish, and the big kicker:
Seriously, cantaloupe is a bad enough allergy that were I to eat it, my throat would close up.
How dumb is that? Cantaloupe.
Usually, when I tell people about my food allergies, they ask if I carry an EpiPen. And I get where they’re coming from, but really, think back on your life…how hard has it been to avoid accidentally eating cantaloupe or lettuce?
What about you? Any weird allergies in your life?
