Fun with Colds
When I've sneezed today, it is a dramatic and full-body experiece. Cats stand and applaude. Bits of plaster come down from the ceiling. My hair flies everywhere. Small children duck in fear.

I should really sell tickets to the event, I could make a fortune!

The only problem with selling tickets is the fact that I have a shy nose. My sneezes take so much work: nose twitching, head tilting, tongue twisting, and even STILL there are some sneezes which won't break free. If anybody looks at me during the prepartion phase for a sneeze (and specifically a cold sneeze), they are almost certain to frighten it off. They are shy, my explosive sneezes. We must be gentle with them.

Bless You Gerd!

At an old job, there was a German engineer with a great name, "Gerd". And although he was fairly intense guy in general, when he would sneeze, he would sneeze SO intensely and loudly that it would actually echo around the big open area (short cubicles only) of basically the whole firm. At first there would be all these scattered "Bless you's" but at some point, maybe after a Cheers marathon or something, everyone got on the same page and from then on each thunderous sneeze would be answered with an equally strong "BLESS YOU GERD!" from about half the office. It got to be pretty funny.

You do realize if you sold tickets, a ringmaster would be a must. You know, someone to collect the waivers and to warn that children, pregnant women, and people with various heart conditions etc would be viewing such a dramatic event at their own risk ;)

Could you just video tape and then sell the DVDs of the sneezes?

Please feel better.
