About one week ago, I felt something was wrong with my throat while eating some peanuts. It was difficult for me to swallow, and I began to cough.
It reminded me that something similar had happened a few weeks before, when I was having my favorite snack called kaki-no-tane, which consists of small rice crackers and peanuts.
Immediately, I thought of an episode in the TV series, NCIS, which I had watched years before, where a flight attendant attempted to murder a lady by giving her a pillow lined with peanut dust.
I may have become allergic to the food, just like the lady in the drama, whose immune system is activated by some of the substances in peanuts.
Though I haven't seen the doctor yet, I've said good-bye to my favorite snack forever. :-(
