It might be that my recent meeting with that awful friend of mine is the cause for my new watercolor of a pineapple – because I´m actually allergic to them! LOL! 🙂
But I haven´t always been allergic to them, quite the contrary – I really loved eating pineapples when I was a kid and couldn´t get enough of them, both the fresh and the canned ones, and I also loved Pizza Hawaii.
But then one day, I noticed that my mouth and lips started to burn and slightly swell when I ate too much of the fruit so I had to cut down my intake which helped for a time.
And then the time arrived where only the slightest bite of a pineapple provoked this reaction and I had to stop eating pineapples all together.
But every so often I dream of eating pineapples, not in my sleep but during the day, when I happen to see them in a supermarket or see someone else eating one.
My only consolation is that I can at least draw and paint the bloody thing without provoking an allergic reaction! 😀
Do you also have food allergies but can´t help dreaming how it would be to eat the thing you´re allergic to?
