ToxicMunkee: Barfmaker: ToxicMunkee: But she admitted that her parents have a real pine - so when she and Theo visit, they have to stay in a different room.


Wow. Grandma and grandpa are dicks.

Heh yeah, and momma is an angel even though she brings him within a few feet of something that will kill him instantly? No, it's grandma's fault.

Pile 'o crap.

In my fantasies other people's grandparents should be better than mine were. They're supposed to love and coddle and spoil, not selfishly put up a real tree which could kill their own grandson.

So I guess the reality is many grandparents are as big of dicks as mine were.


I call lbullsh*t on this. If he were truly that allergic he would have a reaction once inside the house. A responsible and caring parent would not take him into that environment. She is aw'ing both of them and telling the public about what a great chance they are both taking to visit the grandparents.
She claims to have had him tested because she was tested. I have severe allergies and I am skeptical of some allergy claims. Many are psychosymatic.Anxiety about the holidays is easily misdiagnosed as an allergy to the tree or some other holiday substance. People with true allergies just want to live their lives peacefully and not create attention IMHO.

Babwa Wawa: AbbeySomeone: I call lbullsh*t on this. If he were truly that allergic he would have a reaction once inside the house

Nah. My daughter has a no shiat allergy to peanuts, but we feed my son PBJ at the same table. Since the first grade, she sits with kids at the school who may or may not have PBJs. She knows not to eat anyone else's food and wash her hands after lunch, and that's it.

However, I do concur on the AW bit - there's zero reason to keep them out of friends' houses if there's a tree there - unless the kid is somehow mentally debilitated he ought to be able to regulate himself. It is, after all, a six foot f*cking plant, and it's usually in a corner.


I imagine it depends on the allergy and if bits of whatever it is can become airborne. Peanut butter does not become airborne unless you throw it. Pet dander and pollen spread through the air with ease.

There's loving and spoiling their disabled grandson, then there's mollycoddling him.

I can spoil you at your house. I'll leave my crazy pet that likes to eat grandchildren at home.
You come to my house, you'd best BEWARE OF DOG. or tree in this case.

/would never get a real tree indoors.

Yup, because there's no black people out there allergic to dairy or shellfish.


They make Christmas trees out of clam dip now?
