No one should have poison ivy

...where I have poison ivy. No one. Ever.

Not even Republicans.

I just got oral steroids prescribed. I'm not screwing around with this.

Eleven years of peeing in the woods and this has never happened.

Till now.

What in the hell were you doing?? For god's sake, I can't turn my back on you for a minute. So, you do know HOW you got into this little predicament...right?? So that it doesn't get repeated???

Oei, oei! I looked it up on Wikipedia and that looks nasty!
Again something i have learned. Now you have an allergic reaction on that plant!
I hope it will cure very soon!

This i found out.
"Raggy rope, don't be a dope!" Poison ivy vines on trees have a furry "raggy" appearance. This rhyme warns tree climbers to be wary".
One, two, three? Don't touch me!"
I suppose you have not seen these rhymes!
I hope it's better now!

Leaves of three
Let it be.

Poison ivy has a "thumb" on its leaves, too. I'm pretty good at identifying it, actually. I suspect this happened one of the times I had to go during the middle of the night, and so I couldn't see.
