Street Talk: Why so sensitive?


1 comment

Asked Tuesday afternoon at Kiwanis Park

Q: This week we write about a film that follows people with extreme chemical and electrical sensitivities. Do you have any allergies or sensitivities that affect your life? Follow-up: Does anyone in your life have a sensitivity that affects you?


Alec Martin: Oh, jeez. I want to be interesting. Oh! I sneeze every time I eat chocolate. I'm not lying. Meow: Everyone who is allergic to cats can't really come over to my house, because I have a cat.


Jordan Brorby: Yeah. My eyes are always bothering me, I've got an optical issue. As you can see, I'm allergic to grass. It looks like I've been scratched up a bunch. Sod roofs are a thing, I guess: I feel like for the most part I'm the one affecting everyone else. I can't come over to your house, I can't go into the grass.


Sam Freihofer: I'm allergic to bees and the sun. I'm super allergic to bees. I got stung in the pecker once and I couldn't go to work. I couldn't pee all day. Vegetarians, man: My mom is really freaked out by turkeys. They come and go in the yard and they terrorize her. She's always worried about them. She's a vegetarian.


Matthew Everett: I have super-sensitive skin. So, like, when I get out of the shower and I don't 100 percent dry off, it gets super itchy. In my DNA: It came from my mom. She has the same thing, except she's allergic to the sun, too. It's really weird.


Syd Wilson: I'm allergic to fish. Any fish. If it gets on my skin I get super itchy, but if I eat it my throat will close. Shellfish, freshwater fish, any kind of fish. Surrounded by normies: No, I don't think so. I can't say that I do.
