Wow, rough relationship.
Ain’t love grand?
I have sinuses the size of Carlsbad Caverns. It’s an evolutionary adaptation inherited from my ancestors who lived in cold climates. The sinuses pre-heat the air before it gets to the lungs. Heat loss is in the head not the core of the body.
However the side effects are epic sneezes (I can set off a car alarm at 50 paces) and snores that are measured on the Richter scale instead of decibels.
My wife and I love each other dearly but our bedrooms are on separate ends of the house. When we go on the road and have to share the same room, she wears industrial-strength ear plugs: the kind jet engine mechanics wear.
I am glad she does, because if I think I am keeping her awake, I keep myself awake and neither of us get any sleep.
Walt, call the coppers!
If the situation was reversed, Aunty, how might you react? Just wonderin’.
My wife claims I snore, but I don’t. I stayed up one night and listened.
That’s not Snoring. It’s just very Enthusiastic Breathing.
You want to be more than a little cautious about that. Some of us developed hair-trigger adrenaline responses to being roused in this kind of way (I realize this is just a joke, but I am serious about it.) Even if it’s not a violent response, the person with that adrenaline issue won’t be able to sleep again that night, even after he\she can get their heart rate back under 100. To this day, I only wake up some one else with a gentle touch to the toes.
