Quickie: Allergy Season

I don't know about you, but allergy season for me is usually terrible. And this year, my allergies have been hitting me much worse than usual.

In the past, when I started to sneeze, I'd have two or three sneezes and that would be it for a while. Lately, once my sneezes get triggered, I'll go for a series from six to twelve sneezes. And that's only an estimate, as I don't bother to count them when they get going like a railroad train.

If I'm out and about as Mario, this wouldn't be a problem. But being out as Marian, this can pose a problem because I'd be wiping off my nose after sneezing a lot and ruining my makeup.  And I expect this will get worse for a while as many of the flowers and trees are starting to bud and/or bloom. Do you have any ideas of how I can deal with this problem and still look while presenting as Marian?


  1. Living in the Hudson Valley put us at 'ground zero' for allergens of every sort. My suggestion for the next time you visit family on Long Island is that you head to the beach and sit there for a while with the ocean energized and ionized air to try to get some clean allergy free treatment.
    PS: I know people who have had to move to other parts of the country to get away from the allergies that plague our neck of the woods

    1. I never feel my allergies bothering me when I'm in California. Too bad I can't afford SF.
