Springtime For Histamine

It’s springtime in the southeast. Always a fan of fresh air, and with the beautiful weather, I’ve been leaving my windows open, to make use of the nice temperate weather (and because I’m a cheap bastard and don’t want to pay a heating/cooling bill).

Well, about 10 days ago, I swept the floors. And then today, I had to sweep them again. Below is what I swept together in a 12′x13′ room.

Pollen

Now, some of you wonder how I could let my house get so dusty. Okay, I’ve been living as a bachelor for the last 4 weeks, so I doubt you really bothered to wonder. But this isn’t dust. Dust isn’t yellow.

Yep, that’s a pile of pollen on my floor. Atlanta at this time of year is covered in yellow. So a bit of advice, if you’re plagued by allergies, don’t move here. Thankfully I have none [allergies], so I’ve been doing just fine.

Trivia question: Who (other than Sober John, I guarantee he picked up on it even before I thought to write it) can name the reference in the title?

  1. I can’t answer your question Brad, but we pollen down here in Houston too. It’s been especially strong this year and TF and I have been coughing for a while now. I think we are almost out of the pollen season now because it has stopped falling on my car. We have “greened” up nicely. Keep sweeping!

  4. i woke up to a nice warm blanket of snow covering the ground this morning… no pollen in sight.

    Ah, how I love the sweet hoosier air here.

    I must say though, I’d rather deal with that layer of pollen than the layer of crap that once festooned my vehicle when i used to work in Auburn where there was a metal foundry next door and out of their smokestacks spewed a fine black powdery substance that coated everything nearby.

    Three cheers for benedryl! Just don’t take 12 of those at once like i did.
