Thread Name: BS: How do you sneeze?
Subject: RE: BS: How do you sneeze?
According to TheSilentOne, I emit "toy sneezes." Usually only one at a time. I do unfortunately whiff and sniff a bit before it finally takes hold. The "Ahem" prior to the "Amen," so to speak.   Occasionally, I do sneeze a bit more robustly, but it is not a personal choice to do so.

TSO provides no warning whatever to a train of up to a dozen explosive sneezes which tend to plague him many a Sunday morning after he settles into marking student papers. I think he is allergic to work on the weekends and should get GP sign off from it.

The former spouse also sneezed loudly and often in long bursts of numerous high pitched "woman in a horror film" screams. Windows rattled, pets fled, infants wailed, and I contemplated methods of revenge. He was addicted to nasal spray which seemed to make the problem worse.

I have a colleague who without any such officious announcement, will quietly "wiska wiska wiska" about a dozen times every morning. She is a small woman sitting behind a tall partition. This is how we ascertain that she is in the office of a morning.

Gesundheit!
