Does hay fever stop you enjoying wine? I’ve suffered since I was a teenager, not desperately badly, but some years are worse than others. Sneezing is easy. It’s the itchy eyes and the variety of streaming facial liquids that really irritate.
Normally I get it early, I look like a tear-jerk long before May is out, whether I have cast a clout or not. This year has been great, so far. I write this late June and have hardly seen a symptom. But today I have a mild dose. I keep anti-histamine tablets in reserve, in case of emergency. I am a hypochondriac in many senses but I dislike medicine and avoid it as a policy….except when things get really bad. I have taken no prisoners, er pills, this year but I was tempted tonight.
I poured a glass of Alamos Malbec and took a sniff. Snchoooooooorrrrrrggggghhhhhh! No smell. Just a loud nasal fart.
