I know darn well that I have no contagious diseases, COVID-19 or anything else, but from the beginning of the pandemic I have always worn a mask when out of the house because the frequent coughing that goes with asthma is so unnerving to other people. I had a hacking attack in the park one day back in April, and it quite hurt my feelings to see a woman veer widely off the path and around a tree to avoid me, her eyes (above her mask) wide with what really looked like fear.

I just wish I could use Sudafed, or anything that resembles it, but the pseudo-epinephrin that is its active ingredient interacts badly with the bronchodilators that keep asthma under close arrest. Sudafed and its clones are still the most effective of the non-drowsy antihistamines.

Meanwhile, in culinary news, Himself has decided to try cooking a whole chicken in a Dutch oven in the fire-pit. Not sure how this will turn out ... If we come down with ptomaine, I'll know why.
