lol , a sign of the times .
I went allergic to fruit a decade ago and it's all because of a guy in the washroom in the Chinook mall in Calgary back in 1969 .
I was 8 at the time and I was taking a leak when I heard this guy in one of the bathroom stalls going #2 . The guy left the stall and proceeded out the door without washing his hands ,and in those days they had handles on the door , not like today .
So I was grossed out at the thought of touching the door handle so I grabbed a piece of paper towel and used it on the handle so I didn't have to touch it with my bare hands .

Well I have been leaving paper towel or toilet paper at the bottom of the door in public washrooms ever since lol . The bad news is my immune system never developed properly from being to clean . A doctor that works in 3rd world countries said he is around people living in filth , and yet allergies are practically unheard of because they developed a very strong immune system . Nowadays in America a single peanut can be a lethal weapon .
So I suspect this is what happened to me . To think if this guy would have washed his hands that I could be eating fruit right now

That's my theory anyways

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

My wife's daycare is peanut free. We never heard of allergies when we were kids back in the early Bronze Age. Interesting- so we should go back living like our unwashed ancestors lived 1,000 years ago.
Harry, that was really funny! Thanks for sharing.

My wife and I laughed out loud. Thanks Harry! I'm posting this on Facebook, too good not to share.

Great Harry, really enjoyed. Going to send that to my grown kids who fit that to a tee.

I grew up on a farm and can eat anything today.
