Giggle, snort…

Nothing amuses me more than when I tell people I am allergic to pineapple.  9 times out of 10 they say “Oh!  That must be SO hard”  I giggle inside and usually answer “Oh, well, you know..”  When I really want to say ” Actually it’s not so hard.  I usually tend to avoid things that, you know,  will KILL me”  That would be mean though…

  1. Pineapple? Surely that isn’t that much of a major dietary change even without the threat of anaphylatic shock that kills if you don’t have treatment fast enough (I’ve had this happen and it was very, very scary, although we’re not sure what triggered it, but it happened whilst I was decorating the Yule/Christmas tree, my mother, rather unsympathetically thought it was hilarious that I was allergic to a Christmas tree, nevermind the fact I was rushed to A&E as everything swelled and my throat started to close off *sigh* but we haven’t risked a real tree again 😦 )

    Not so many things with hidden pineapple, unlike for instance, soya or milk (which seems to get into all sorts of places you wouldn’t necessarily expect).

    Bit of an unusual one though 🙂
