Be glad that's all you touched. I could tell a story on Miz Anne but won't.

Isn't that weird, I'm practically immune to ordinary tear gas but vomitant
gas and pepper spray just tear me up awful. I got hit full in the face by a
skunk once and was sick for a week. My eyes burned for days even after
washing. That's what I get for looking under the workbench to see what that
"cat" was doing there. Big family joke now, "Hey Dad, there's a cat under
the car, can you get it out?" Fat chance.

I've seen it spelled "wuss" but wouldn't swear to it.
