If You Sneeze Once, It Means Someone Is Thinking About You. If You Sneeze 100 Times, It Means a Virus Is Thinking About You.

I can't stop sneezing today. I just hit 50 times.

Oh snap, 52.

I read (with a grain of salt) that when you sneeze, it means someone is thinking about you.

53.

Alright! Come on now. My nose has been tingly since breakfast.


the nose knows irritation

57.

This is getting ridiculous.

I think I might be developing an allergy to...let me retrace my steps.

- saturday late afternoon: ate pizza - nose was fine.
- saturday evening: did improv show - no sneezing incidents.
- saturday late night: nachos and beer - nose started tingling.
- sunday morning: drove back to DC from north carolina - nose felt jazzy.
- sunday afternoon: improv class - nose felt snazzy.
- sunday evening: open mic - nose felt spazzy.
- monday morning: work - nose pulled a coup on my face.

I'm thinking it has to be nachos, beer, doing things, unknown cause, or good health.

If anyone has any suggestions for removing my nose from my face, please let me know. Also, whoever is thinking about me, you're doing a really good job. Almost too good...(drawing attention to ominous trail-off)

In unrelated news, yesterday I was in a bookstore, and a big, thick book fell off the shelf on the floor right next to me. Get ready for unplanned humor. I picked it up to put it back. The book was called Putting the Movement Back into Civil Rights Teaching.

a) It's Black History Month. I get it!
b) The book literally put movement back into civil rights teaching by falling on the floor!
c) You had to be there.

I did find this nice quote.

"Drawing on my fine command of the language, I said nothing."

Sorry, surrounding cube-dwellers!

70.

Let's end on a nice, round number.

71.

Enough.
75.
100! (a few hours later)
Ok I'm leaving. This is really something else!

This web comic XKCD, discovered today, is amazing.

Or maybe allergies? You could try taking a claritin (non-drowsy) and see if it helps.
