that he has once again contracted poison ivy. Let’s not forget that I had to take him to the ER for his last bout about a month ago. And now, I feel itchy.

He does this to me at least twice a summer. He runs through the nature study woods by our house and always comes into contact with it. Now, he claims to have used some $40 wonder lotion that’s supposed to wash off any trace of the oils and begin the healing process. Except that he caught the poison ivy yesterday, so, by now, the oils are already spread throughout the house.

I’m really itchy now. And I still don’t have a theme song.
