Dear Pollen,

It’s the beginning of May and spring has clearly just gotten the memo to start; therefore, I am confused as to why you decided to turn my white car yellow and fill my airways with mucus so early. You see pollen, it’s hard for anyone to pay attention in class when we have to get up at least five times during a class period to blow our noses and find it difficult to keep a conversation going with someone when we’re concerned that we will sneeze after each word. Let’s not even bring up outdoor activities. According to the weather forecast for this week, grass pollen will be extremely high and tree pollen will be moderate. This means that outdoor breathing comfort is considered good this week. Usually, I prefer my breathing comfort to be great considering that it is extremely difficult to run five miles when the air is filled with pollen. How do you expect people to get out and exercise when they have to deal with good breathing conditions?

Sure, pollen is normal and comes around every year, but not when it’s almost forty degrees every morning. Since you decided to come before spring, it’s only fair to everyone if you make your exit soon. Apparently, though, you’re planning on sticking around even longer this year which is just plain evil. Senior Madison Black said, “I keep postponing my car wash because of pollen. One day I think it’s over then the next day my car is all yellow again. I am also tired of spending money on allergy medicine and more than one box of tissues. Pollen needs to go”.

So there you have it pollen, no one likes you and we all think it’s time for you to go. Sure plants and bees might appreciate you, but I think you’ve been around long enough this year.

Sincerely,
All allergy sufferers.
