Everyone around has been sneezing and coughing like crazy since we've had some nice weather here in NYC. Today I saw a notice that the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (um....what????...shouldn't it be The Department of Hygiene and Mental Health? Do they even go together? It's like the Alchohol, Tobacco, and Firearms people...I don't get the correlation except that when you mix them, there's bound to be trouble!) announced on Friday that allergy and asthma symptoms among New Yorkers has doubled in the past week. Sweet!
That being said, I thought I'd take this time to publicly
b!tch slap loud sneezers. I have good friends who are loud sneezers and I've let a few go that were none too quiet. However, this week I've heard all sorts of sounds: "Heeeee choooooo!", "Arrrrrufffffffff", and the loud holder inner: "Herugmph!". I think it's really rude when people sneeze so loud. Especially in the morning. It frightens me and when I get scared, people DIE! Just kidding. You know they're doing it for attention. "Oh, God bless you!" they hope we say.
Nope. "Jesus Christ! Do you have to sneeze so loudly?", is what I say.
It's been quiet on the streets (are people starting to learn???) but we've got our eyes peeled. Of course Pookie and I are hitting the town tonight, so I'm sure we'll find some vicitms!
Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! Have a margarita (or two) for BOTS!
