Wanting what I can't have

Even with my lips broken out in blisters and the skin surrounding my mouth covered in a sandpapery rash caused by an allergic reaction to eating mango, all I could think when I saw Eric eating a mango just now was, "Mmmmmm... I want that."

Why, of all the fruits in the world, must I be allergic to mangos? Why not apples, which I'm not that crazy about? Or passionfruit, which smells like cat pee? Or pomegranates which I hardly ever eat and hardly ever see in stores? I guess this is just my cross to bear in life.

could be worse--you could be allergic to chocolate.
