I thought I was immune.
Or at least highly resistant.
No, no, no, no, no, no, NO.
Turns out all my wild boasts about not being affected by mango tree sap were lies, lies, lies.
It figures. Seeing as my current living situation seems to be manifesting all sorts of “do not get comfortable” bad juju, I suppose I should have been on the lookout for something like this to happen.
Seems for all my mango picking and wrangling and handling, the one outside my house – which has three or four different varietals on it, so hard to say which specific type is to blame, although I have my suspicions – contains the evil sap.
Why did you have to go and be all related to poison oak and poison ivy and thus do those of us susceptible to the other two this way??
That’s no way to treat a friend.
And for two days now I’m all welty and scratchy and GOOD GOD WHY DOES MY EYE ITCH!?!?!?
