Have Nose, Will Sneeze (standard:humor, 901 words)
Author: GodspenmanAdded: Mar 15 2020Views/Reads: 145/81Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
I may not be able to control my sneezes, but I think with a great deal of work and concentration, I can keep my mouth shut when necessary.
 



Many things about me could be called into question, and a lot has. I get
that. However, the most attractive thing about me is my nose. I am not 
sure of the reason why, it looks like anybody else's nose. 

My nose, however, attracts everything around it, from dust to pollen and
other unmentionables. If there is something not attracted to my nose I 
haven't found it yet. 

This past week has been no exception. If it was in the air, it was in my
nose. I do not know why my nose is so attractive to things, but there 
it is. I am the one that suffers the consequences of that attractive 
nose of mine. To be very certain, I did not pick my nose, it came with 
my face. 

It seems the older I get, the more attractive my nose gets. I do not
know if that is old age or if I am just beginning to notice it. When I 
was younger, of course, I was busy with other things, although I cannot 
remember what they were. Now that I am older, I have more time to pay 
attention to stupid things like my nose. 

I can sneeze at the drop of a hat, which is one reason I do not wear
hats anymore. 

One mystery surrounds my sneezing. When I start sneezing, it has to be
at least three sneezes. Why three? You'll have to ask my nose about 
that. It never fails; my sneeze is a consistent triplet activity 

Coming into the house the other day, I stopped and started one of those
sneezing fits. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said, "Why didn't 
you sneeze outside before you came into the house?" 

I know she can control everything around her, including me, which is the
difference between her and me. The one thing I can never control is my 
nose. If I could control my nose, I probably could be a happier person. 


My nose will sneeze whenever it wants to sneeze, and I have no authority
over that decision. It never asks my permission! 

I only know three seconds after I sneeze that I am going to sneeze. That
creates many problems with me during this time of the year. 

My wife once instructed me that when I sneeze, I need to sneeze into the
elbow of my shirtsleeve. This has caused me to change shirts at least 
three times a day, which has made the laundry basket a problem. 

One time my wife asked, “Why are there so many of your shirts in the
laundry basket?” 

“Just look at the right sleeve,” I instructed her. 

When she did, an awful Yuk sound came from her direction. 

This week my sneezing has been the worst I have ever known it. I do not
have a cold, the flu, or any sinus infection, just a nose that sneezes 
all the time. I do not have a headache or sore throat, or clogged 
lungs. I am just sneezing for no reason at all, which is a source of 
frustration for me. 

I hate it when I am about to take a sip of coffee, and I sneeze. After I
jump up and do a happy dance, I change my trousers for clean ones. 
Coffee can really be hot, especially when you sneeze. 

Is there such a thing as a sneezeologist? I sure would like to get some
counsel on how to control my sneezing. Somebody needs to be an expert 
on sneezing. Sure, I am an expert on sneezing, but not on how to quit 
sneezing. That is my biggest problem. 

Every Sunday, I am so frightened that in the middle of my sermon I am
going to have a sneezing fit. Nothing could clear the church quicker 
than one of my sneezing fits to be sure. 

After one of my sneezing fits, I wondered if there is such a thing as a
sneezing contest. If there is, I am sure I could come very close to 
taking home the trophy.
