An English In Kentucky

     Some kind of green pollen out there. I could call it Grass Pollen, but that might upset Trees, because Trees too can produce pollen that can put down a layer of dust on something like the hood of a vehicle,  thick enough  to give you a chance to write a few words with your finger.  And here "dork" is a nice word, it's kind of expressive and shouldn't really upset anyone much beyond a raised eyebrow. I mean you're not talking "Down With Coca Cola," or any of those sort of emotive expressions that can piss people off.

     The less positive side of Green Pollen  is the relationship it has with some nasal passages.  And I have come to the conclusion that of the pollens, Green Pollen is the sneakiest. It kind of creeps up on you, just a little dribble of the nose at first, that kind of dribble you can manage with a sleeve so long as no one is looking, then all of a sudden there's a sneeze and the next you know your blowing green slime into your hands, and you're wondering whether it might be time to seek help from the medical profession. Anyway, it's Tomato Planting Day.
