The Day I Found Out I Was Allergic To Freshwater Fish Was The Worst Day

My uncle just started hosting a Friday night fish fry at his Malibu home. I've never really liked fried foods, but I wanted to support his get together as a good family member would do. I love my family after all.
Friday came around and my uncle's house was filled with the smell of fish. The smell was very strong, but smelled really good. My uncle was near the deep fryer most of the night and handed me my first piece of catfish. I took a bite and it was delicious. Moments later my gums started to itch. I was allergic, but had a Benadryl on me. Saved my life.
