I once worked with a woman who, in her late 30s, still didn't eat birthday cake because she got sick after eating it once -- on her 5th birthday.

A few years back we bought a Thunder Shirt for Rin. As soon as we put it on, she started dragging her hindquarters behind her as if they were paralyzed. Fortunately Thunder Shirts are returnable.
