Genetics Rears Its Ugly Head

Years ago, my father warned me that he has an allergy to alcohol.

I, naturally, ignored this warning and blissfully went on my merry way.

This weekend, I believe I found a beverage I’m allergic to. The liquid in question is the fair amber Corona. Upon ingestion of said brew, I begin to experience palpitations, an increased heart rate, and shortness of breath. Well, at least I know. Nisa thinks its probably an ingredient in the beverage, perhaps the formaldehyde (or something) that they use during the brewing process.

Whatever it is, I’m not drinking it again. Not that it’s vile or anything.

It was nice, but not that nice.
