I have a cold. Not a noteworthy cold in any way...well except the first day when my left sinus felt extremely strongly as if a small insect had crawled up there and was gnawing its way through my head. Never quite felt anything like that before.
Onwards, that is not the point of today's story.
I have a cold.
An unremarkable cold. I was sitting by the fire this evening, with Eldest, when I sniffed. A perfectly small, normal, honest little sniff. Somewhere within the depths of my sinuses, just for a moment, something (possibly that insect) was chanelling someone a WHOLE lot older, smellier and male...you know, one of those old men on the subways that make the most astonishing and DISGUSTING noises when they siff.
That was a bit of a stunner.....and I started to giggle a little. Eldest (at 15) was of course utterly horrified by my profound uncouthness and muttered imprecations none too quietly into her non-existant beard. So I decided to blow my nose. As I opened my mouth to inhale enough to blow...no nasal inhalations going on around here these days. That insect? He came with corks it would seem.
ANYWAY, as I was inhaling preparatory to blowing I burped. Not a small lady-like burp...this time someone or other in my aesophagus was chanelling a Frat House beer drinker. That was a B.U.R.P. this left me giggling all the harder, and trying to blow my nose at the same time. Toot..tooot....toooooot....gigglegiggle giggle.
Eldest was SOOOO unimpressed, but even she had to laugh, it was just so very very astonishing!
Then I just had to fart to round it off, just for her.
Just wait till I'm OLD little girl!!!!!
