What substance fell on me and will I be okay?
« on: June 08, 2014, 10:08:30 PM »
Hi everyone,

It's been awhile since I posted here. . .I am so glad a resource like this exists!

I was walking along a tree-lined street in the city this evening (I live in Chicago). I felt something land on my upper lip. If I had been walking by a building I would have guessed it was condensation from an air conditioner. But I wasn't walking by a building, I was walking under a tree. I immediately wiped my mouth with my shirt, but CANNOT STOP worrying about what it might have been. When I got inside I looked at where I had wiped my mouth on my shirt. It didn't appear to have a color, like bird poop would. But again, I CANNOT STOP worrying about what it might have been! Bird poop? Some other animal poop? Urine? It hasn't rained in almost 24 hours so I don't think it was a random droplet.

Agh, it drives me crazy that 98% of other people would have moved on with their day and would not be obsessing about this like I am. Has anyone here had a similar experience? Any insight/wisdom/knowledge to share?

Thank you!

This happens to me all the time. As a kid it used to really bug me and I had a reaction similar to yours.

I have never once heard of someone contracting some horrible illness or becoming poisoned by a random droplet from some mystery origin.

You're fine. You have an immune system designed to handle exactly these kinds of things.

It's summer - it's water from an AC unit.  I'm getting splattered with it when I go out too.  I swear sometimes I think they must be sentient and enjoy trying to get us wet.

Leaves on trees also hold dew which falls during the day - quite common
