One of life's sensational pleasures

I am pretty sure that, if you will be quite honest, you will admit that a good rousing sneeze, one that tears open your collar and throws your hair into your eyes, is really one of life's sensational pleasures.
~Robert Benchley,1932

Yes. Quite. Unfortunately, familiarity breeds contempt. The gloss has come off and we have all well and truly had enough of sneezing. And coughing. And sore throats. And feeling miserable.

Hope you and yours are still enjoying a good rousing sneeze.


  1. Oh get well soon . . . i'm quite the man sneezer & remember once at a job in a boutique environment i was ordered to only sneeze in the bathroom if it was empty as i sneeze like a man!! Oh dear!! My children have been known to blow their noses too hard & burst an ear drum, not me, i can blow with gusto. Love Posie

  2. do you know what- I am reading the quote and thinking- nu uh, not with a sore throat. I am quite miserable too and hope we both cheer up soon!

  3. I hope that you all feel better really soon...
