Dear Body,

When I plan a relaxing weekend, you know what you shouldn't do?

GIVE ME HIVES.

There I was on Friday, planning to spend the afternoon--and then the whole weekend--doing nothing but relaxing (reading books, watching movies, spoiling my dog (though I'll grant you I'm not sure how much more spoiled she can get) ) and what do you do?

GIVE ME HIVES.

The first few I shrugged off. No big deal! I get hives! I'll be fine! They'll go away!

They didn't. They hung around. And they brought friends.

By Saturday morning, I was on a double dose of my regular antihistamine plus lots of Benadryl. Yes, it's true, I was relaxed (to the point of incoherence, even!) but lying around staring blankly at the ceiling while I dozed on and off for a WHOLE DAY was not relaxing. It was all I could do.

Even now, they still aren't gone, but please, immune system o'mine, have pity on me and ease up. Pretty please? I promise that if you relax, I'll relax, and then we'll both win.

Love,
Elizabeth


PS Congrats to Kate, who won the ARC of Evernight!

Have you considered the plastic bubble lifestyle lately?

Aw, poor you! I hope you feel better soon!

Have you seen the movie bubble boy with Jake Gyllenhaal? If you had to get a bubble you should get one like that! =D
