    My hat is definitely off to you, finding things to like about poison ivy. Having spent every summer of my childhood wrapped in wet gauze, I sympathize. Evil stuff.

    I hope the itching doesn't drive you crazy. It's great that you have a sense of humor about the whole thing. I've been on courses of prednisone a number of times and have never had any noticeable reaction to it.
