Someone is a Tortsneezer

current state of mind: sleep-deprived

All of these words whispered in my ear
Tell a story that I cannot bear to hear
Just 'cause I said it, it don't mean that I meant it
People say crazy things
~ “Rumour Has It” by Adele

I have a bestie in Tejas who has the cutest sneeze in the world.  When she sneezes it is this cute, petite, high-pitched, but very quiet “choo”.  She reminds me of those cute girls in high school who did everything looking and sounding perfect.  She clearly has been given a gift. 

Me, on the other hand, sneeze ridiculously loud and always say “ ‘scuse me” automatically after, without thought.  Last night in Torts I must have sneezed half a dozen times, interrupting the lecture and causing several people to say “Bless You”.  My instructor even said, “You must be allergic to Torts” which made everyone laugh, except me who happens to like Torts and don’t believe the threat of anaphylactic shock is a funny topic.  That second part was just for dramatic effect. 

With the amazing warm weather, allergy season is in full swing and I only remember to take my Alavert every couple of days.  In fact, last night I swore I would take it and forgot.  Clearly my brain is addled from lack of sleep.   Oh well.  Insomnia and sleep deprivation are nothing new to my “life experience”.  I’ll get some sleep this weekend.  I am sure of it.  Woot for that!

PERSONAL NOTE:  I look back on the day we bought the peacock necklace and miss you so much!  Hope your tummy feels okay today.

CONFIDENTIAL NOTE:  Just for you . . .  Ego sum rex Romanus et supra grammaticam.  (hee hee)
