Poison Ivy... Starring Legos

I get poison ivy all the time.

I swear all it takes is for someone to say those two words and I will get a rash all over my body.  You just said it, didn't you?  For the most part I can tolerate the itching.  The problem is that it gets on your hands and well, your hands touch everything.  Your legs, your arms, your face, and well you know the rest.  There is one product that I have found works to relieve the itching for me, but it happens to be the most expensive thing on the market.  That's annoying, but not as annoying as getting poison ivy to begin with.

So I guess from now on either I go outside with a full body suit, or I hire someone to do the work for me.  I've had enough of this stupid plant.

    Classic. I love those. And, as an aside, I don't get poison ivy, never have. Hahahahahahahahaha... sorry.

  2. I used to be so allergic to poison oak, just looking at it was a trip to the emergency room. My mom cried all night over the guilt of not being able to look at me... as my face had morphed into something from star trek.

    You're not burning it are you? Even the fumes are dangerous. Now im not certain this is true for poison ivy... but poison oak is nicknamed "the great imitator", as it will take the shape and color of surrounding vegetation, like chameleons. The only true way to identify poison oak, is to count the leaves per stem. Always three on a branch.

  3. Also, i think after having it so often as a kid... i may be immune. Im too cared to really test that theory however. Of course now that im talking about it... well "knock on wood"
