reggie miles Folklore: Sunday Throat? (39) RE: Folklore: Sunday Throat? 29 Apr 10


My guess is that it has to do with the fact that the food or what ever was swallowed, got accidentally inhaled. It's happened to me but mostly with something I drank. The Sunday throat is perhaps referring to the lungs, used to sing at church on Sunday. Once it goes down the wrong pipe, a period of coughing takes place and my voice is shot for a while afterward. Think before you eat and drink.

A quick search via Google brought this up, http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-sun1.htm. It's not much more in the way of an explanation but it does bring up more questions. ;o)
