Hump Day Haikus: The Allergy Collection


The Allergy Collection, Spring 2016

Nasal Congestion
Cupboards look like pharmacy
Can't tell why...red eye

My nose is running
While my feet do the smelling
I am built backwards

(Yes, it's an old joke
It's "Cherdo on the Flipside"
And I am Cherdo)

  1. Great haiku and so true! I am not sure what is running more, my eyes or my nose. Even my hubby had a sneezing fit today.

    1. Did you ever get one of those coughy-sneezy attacks while trying to have a serious conversation? Yuck.

  2. I think you should start referring to yourself as "THE CHERDO!"

    1. It'll be HUGE. I could talk about myself in the third person all the time and I'm sure that would be endearing to others...not.

    1. fishducky rules! Ha ha ha. Haiku responses should become the norm. Maybe that will be my next suggestion on a Humpday Haiku.

  8. Ah, you captured my feelings perfectly. I can't leave the house in the morning without at least an hour of nose blowing.

    Love,

    1. Gonzo, your adopted son, gets full-on raccoon eyes that look terrible. Like brown circles.

  10. I remember spring and fall in the US and all the allergy attacks I'd have. I used to get them in the winter, too, as I'm allergic to the damp and to all kinds of mold/mildew. I'm also allergic to dust, which is mainly what Egypt is composed of. Yes, I should buy shares of tissue companies as I generally go through a box a week. Have a good weekend!

    1. Lexa, on top of it all, I live in one of the worst place for allergies in the whole USA. Beautiful area...horrible for seasonal allergies!

  11. Good one! I think writing Haiku is tough. Especially for me: I'm wordy. :)

    Allergies suck. I live in Austin which is known as the Allergy Capital of the World. It's horrible here, year 'round too. I feel your pain...

    Have a good weekend,
    Michele at Angels Bark

  12. Hump Day? Yeah it blows.
    Spitting, biting, nasty stuff,
    It's about camels?

  13. LOL! I should get my sister to write one of these. Her spring allergies get so bad, she wakes up most mornings with her eyes glued shut from the film of ick that builds on them overnight Then she has epic sneezing fits. She got up to 28 sneezes in a row once. And it's super hilarious because once she gets past like 6 sneezes, she starts swearing like a sailor between each sneeze.
