This is hilarious! I love that this is your response to the "does everything about Rodney have to be woobified?" bit.

I actually have several friends with severe allergies and a few with mild ones. One of them is actually mild allergies to certain food preservatives and dyes. He gets incredibly jittery, snappish, and has trouble sleeping...this story put me immediately in mind of him and the correlations are too funny. It is soo easy for me to see many of Rodney's traits as a result of a food reaction.

I do have a strange mind. Heh.

I've heard of folks with less-typical reactions to rarer allergens, particularly irritability, and it seems so awful to go through and so frustrating to isolate, so I definitely have sympathy. And dear tetchy Rodney ....

Thank you!
