Should I be dead right now?!

Okay, I just sneezed 25 times in a ROW. I thought that this had to be some kind of Guinness World Record but they don't have any online records for sneezing. So I went googling and discovered that:

So basically, I am now sitting here typing with my eyes closed (physically impossible to keep your eyes open when you sneeze you know), fractured ribs, a couple of ruptured blood vessels and my heart has been stopped for 25 milliseconds.

When will this wretched kafunsho season end?! I hate those stupid cedar trees and I refuse to wear the ridiculous ShinkoQ Kafunsho Sugi Kafun Face Mask. Grrr.

    I heard somewhere that people say "Bless you" because we used to think evil spirits were exiting the body during a sneeze.

    Or did I just make that up? ;)

    I will never, ever suppress a sneeze again after reading this!

    Thanks Antonia :)

    Liz: I've heard that one too - humans have believed some weird things over the years!

    And may I add that this post is very timely? My seasonal allergies just kicked in. Now it's 8 months of agony, unless we get an unexpected snowfall. :)

    You have yours for 8 months Liz?! That's horrendous - mine only last till Mayish. I'll keep my fingers crossed for snow then :x (that's me sneezing!)

    Ooh, the face mask is very Michael Jackson.

    Carolyn: all the years I've been living here surrounded by these masks I've never ever connected them to Jacko - now that you've said it, they no longer just look ridiculous, they look downright sinister :p

    I like your choice of mask too!

    I thought I might be able to find you a "chicken soup" remedy on the Guiness site, but this is the closest I could find. Mighty Mike-what a trooper. Sure beats hay fever, eh?
    (BTW, I'm glad you didn't die (from sneezing)! Feel better soon!)

    Thanks for the kind thoughts melbo. With the blockage in my head right now, it'd be kind of nice to have my head chopped off - but I don't fancy being fed by an eyedropper :p

    Hysterical post - hadn't thought of sneezing being particularly blogworthy before:)
