my fatal flaw is hubris

I always used to look down on people with seasonal allergies. I used to say that they shouldn't have children, so that our species could become strong again.

Well, it turns out that one can develop allergies later in life. I was a little sniffly last spring, but tried not to think about it. This year, I'm sneezing every two seconds again. WHY did I have to be so arrogant? GAH.

Well, I promise not to have any kids.

Would you say you... look DOWN on those who have kids, even?

Huh? No, I wouldn't say that at all. I look down on kids, though. I'm taller.

Oh, I get it. Not having kids is entirely under my control, though. Luckily for me.

When I developed allergies, I was so mad. That's for cry-babies! But my allergist told me something I'll tell you: your immune system is a on-off switch. Something big can happen (flu, high stress levels, etc.) and flip that switch to ON and boom, you've got allergies.

The good part about that is that means something big can happen and flip that switch to OFF!

I imagine it's the same mechanism that gives cartoon characters amnesia or cures it when they get smacked on the head.
