Hay Fever

Hay Fever

I’m writing at my favourite café and a woman sneezed. I gave her the appropriate ‘bless you’ in a non-religious way.

She disappeared to get a napkin (ouch) and upon returning, mentioned it was her Hay fever. Then she stated:

“It’s so debilitating”

Mmmmm…. Ok, it’s shitty, I agree, but debilitating is a strong word. Hay fever can suck. It really can. In Melbourne there is a season where it can kill, but this woman’s hay fever to me feels like a first world problem.
