Me: What's paper carpet?
Him: Well, you know, the leather carpet.
Me: I don't understand.
Him: The carpet in our house. I think I'm allergic to it. That's why I'm coughing so much.
Me: I think you might be right. You know we're getting rid of the carpet, right?
Him: Yeah, and I'm glad.
We rode in silence for a while. From the back seat he said, "Mom, I think I need some Omnaris."
Me: Some what??Just say "no" to pharamaceutical commercials.
Him: Some Omnaris. It's a nose spray. When you use it it helps reduce your nasal allergy symptoms.
Me: Oh. Okay. Well, how about we get rid of the carpet first and see if that helps. And then if it doesn't help I'll take you to the allergy doctor. Sound good?
Him: Sounds good.
