Isn't that a great surname, especially given what Dr. Suffer-idge opines is about to happen? The wet spring and hot, dry summer--the worst possible combination for ragweed--allowed plants to germinate the pollen that's now set to infect heads, noses, and throats. Worse yet, that will cause lots of suffer-ing--an irritated cough as well as itchy eyes, nose, and ears. That suffer-ing is only the first of a two-act play. The second act includes a sinus infection--as The Motley Monk knows only too well.
Instead, The Motley Monk uses a neti pot (the exact one pictured below) with alkalol (the exact kind pictured below)--using the precise water temperature, saline solution, and alkalol mix--at the first sign of an allergy attack that can morph into a sinus infection. Provides great relief any time of the day, washes out the poisons, and turns a week-long sinus infection into a three-day period of suffer-idge. No need for any Vicks' Vapo-Rub.
Hopefully Dr. Sufferidge's assessment of this year's allergy season is consonnant with the phrase "What happens in Texas, stays in Texas!"
