So I learned something new today that I never knew before. When tending our garden we realized that the cucumber plants are growing out of control and strangling all nearby plants. So we thought, "no big deal," we will put all the vines through a tomato cage so that it grows upward not outward. Little did Blake and I realize, cucumbers have tiny thorns that didn't seem to hurt until around 10 minutes after gardening when we both realized how itchy we were. Our arms were breaking out in a irratating rash. So we immediately ran across the street to the 7-11 to buy Benedryl. They were out, so we ran to the bathroom only to find that the water pressure was less than desirable. We went to the drug store, bought Benedryl and after taking three each to counter-act the allergic reaction we were having, we came to the conclusion that we didn't buy the non-drowsy Benedryl. Just a few things we learned today.
