They make me want to weep and pound the desk in woe, actually. But I don't.
I really don't like to complain about personal stuff. I think part of it is that my parents aimed for raising me with a sense of how fortunate I've been, and since they had a very literal small child I wound up with a sense that everyone everywhere has it harder than me. Which is not generally a bad thing in a lot of ways, but it comes with a few drawbacks in terms of my sense of proportion.
Anyway, I just want to say:
Chinese medicinal herbs. They can be really pretty nasty. Especially when you have a very sensitive nose and palate.
