Happy 3rd Bloggersary

So 'The Right to be Alive' is now officially 3 years old. A big congratulations to you as you survived the 'Terrible Twos!'

So now that you are 3 years old, you should be able to do a host of things which you weren't able to do when you were busy throwing your two-year-old-temper-tantrums around.

1. You should be able to say your name when prompted.

Curious George: 'What's your name?'


C.G: 'Say again?'


C.G: 'Clever girl!'

You: *clap hands

2. Answer simple questions.

Curious George: Would you like to have some of my food? It's delicious.

You: NO!

C.G: I don't mind.

You: I can't.

C.G: Why not?

You: I have medical condition. Cannot eat lots of stuff.

C.G: Really? What do you have?

You: Salicylate sensitivity which can lead to anaphylaxis.

C.G: Sali... what? I'm sorry. What's that?

You: .............................. (For a brief second, it felt like the two-year-old-temper-tantrum was frothing up to the surface of your emotions.)

3. Pretend and fantasize more creatively.

You daydreaming:
'Someday my prince will come,
He will come on his white steed,
In his white shining armour,
And all the storms will be calm,
As He will save ME from this horrible stampede,
Hide me in the deepest corner,
From the salicylate monster,
And slay the dragon of anaphylaxis!'


4. Recognize and identify common objects and pictures.

Lettuce iceberg, celery, chayote, cabbage = negligible in salicylates

Pepper, chillies, spices = very high in salicylates

5. Climb well.

Monday: The Hill of Never Give Up

Tuesday: The Hills of Never Say Never

Wednesday: The Mountain that Goes On & On & On

Thursday: The Range of the Breakthrough-That-Seems-So-Near-Yet-So-Far

Friday: The Peak of Death

Saturday & Sunday: Avalanche


So get ready for a new adventure that will knock you out of your socks as you continue on the journey called 'The Right to be Alive'!
