This is some topic related chit chat, with the operative word being topic related…

Not worried. I dont bathe. Everybody knows that causes leprosy
I met a man in a trailer park once who told me that he showers once a month, whether he needs it or not.

Some times we just see someone using blatantly manipulative sentence structure as CLICK- BAIT and our hackles go up.
I find your use of the language most peculiar and was stuck trying to figure out what "CLICK- BAIT" was. I was going to ask but during a second
reading, I was curious why you put "next" in green, and found out what it means. I wish all learning were that simple!
But then I was going to ask what golf clapping was, only I was able to Google that one. We could use an emoji for that, which is also a new word for

To you and other chemical sensitives, it is frightening how quickly one exposure and reaction to it can sort of set off a volley of other reactions.
After a horrific pesticide exposure, that included OPs (that’s organophosphates, not Original Posters, if that’s what ATS’s OP stands for?) I
went through that mysterious syndrome of three phases of seemingly unrelated symptomologies.
But there was an odd onslaught of new exposures with odd reactions when, a few weeks later, we tried to gather and burn the pesticide riddled greenery
that had died off. Besides my husband quite suddenly turning beet red with a high fever and going into a semi-coma for the rest of the day, our
assistant from work, and an epileptic, had come over to help gather leaves that day and as he turned to wave at me, he went into a Grand mal seizure
when some dust from the leaf gathering hit him in the face.
Since I had been inside for most of this, as I was the most affected earlier and was still quite ill, I was still the one left trying to prepare
dinner that night, as they were both out of commission for the rest of the day. As I was trying to make one of our “staples” of pork schnitzel,
and was coating the meat with some lemon juice, it seemed like suddenly there was an odd stickiness on my hands that I couldn’t wash off. I kept
getting an odd residue when I rubbed my hands together. After several attempts at trying to wash it off, I realized that it was actually my skin
falling off my hands!
The following day, and days, as I was putting on my make up, I began to itch all over, and again the skin started to come off my hands. It took a
short time to realize that I was now being affected by the sheep skin rug that I would sit on, on the floor, as the table I used was too low for a
normal chair. I made the link when I went to momentarily move the rug to vacuum under it and immediately my fingers began to itch upon reaching under
the skin side of the rug. And then we learned of the products that can remain on wool as a residue, that causes farmers to get something called Sheep
Perhaps you are being affected by wool in a similar way, but to a lesser extent? I tried to look up and make a link for you folks but I’m afraid I
might start another battle here with my linking skills, so please, if you are interested, just Google the words Sheep Dipper’s Fever or variations
of that theme, as I do believe that this could be behind many sensitivities to wool.
Happy Sunday, everyone...play nice.
