Sneezing After You Eat – Do You Do It?

You Know You are Full When the Sneezing Begins


sneezing foodWhen I wrote Do You Sneeze for Odd Reasons,  I mentioned how I would sneeze after I ate ice cream. Now I sneeze after I eat period.

I’ve sneezed after eating ice cream for quite sometime, then a few years ago I started to sneeze half way into my meal. Not just once mind you, but 5,6,7 times. LOL

Some foods bring it on earlier than others. I read somewhere it was some gene that mutates that normally triggers your sneezing when something gets in your nose and somehow it triggers with your stomach too.


The fun part is when I’m at work and grab lunch at my desk. People go, “Tammy must be eating”. Then they laugh.

The hard part is when folks start the “bless you”. Did you know that most folks get irritated saying bless you around the 3 or 4th time?   🙂

I always let them off the hook on the 2nd one saying that one will be good for all of them.

I still don’t know what causes them and I don’t know if they will ever go away. Most of the time it doesn’t bother me. Unless of course I also drank a big glass of water and you can imagine what that and 7 sneezes might cause. (I know what you are thinking, no, I haven’t peed my pants…LOL)

So, do you sneeze when you eat?

You aren’t alone. My post from back then has a lot of folks stopping by to say they are glad they aren’t the only ones. Nope, You are in a special club of not normal sneezers. I wonder if we should have a special badge of honor?

I’d welcome you all!!

Who’s Not Afraid of the Devil?

Fear No Evil


funny storyOne bright, beautiful Sunday morning, everyone in the tiny town of MyTown wakes up early and goes to their local church. Before the service starts, the townspeople sit in their pews and talk about their lives, their families, etc.

Suddenly, at the altar, amidst an explosion of fire, Satan appears!

Everyone starts screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling each other in their determined efforts to get away from Evil Incarnate.

Soon, everyone is evacuated from the church except for one man, who sits calmly in his pew, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God’s ultimate enemy is in his presence.

This confuses Satan a bit.

Satan walks up to the man and says, “Hey, don’t you know who I am?”

The man says, “Yep, sure do.”

Satan says, “Well, aren’t you afraid of me?”

The man says, “Nope, sure ain’t.”

Satan, perturbed, says, “And why aren’t you afraid of me?”

“Well, I’ve been married to your sister for 25 years, how bad could you be?”

dead duck

Getting a Second Opinion at the Vet

Does Your Vet Know What They Are Talking About?


dead duckA woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon and laid it on the table. The vet pulled out his stethoscope, listened to the bird’s chest and informed the woman that her duck was dead.

The distressed woman wailed, “Are you sure? I mean, you haven’t done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something.”

The vet rolled his eyes, left the room and returned with a Labrador retriever. The dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet patted the dog on the head and led it out of the room.

A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the woman and said, “I’m sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely a dead duck.” The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman.

lab report and cat scanThe duck’s owner, still in shock, took the bill and screamed, “$150! Just to tell me my duck is dead?”

The vet shrugged, “I’m sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the lab report and the cat scan, it’s now $150.”

Joke of the Day – The Affair

Just Send a Post Card


joke_dayFor two years, a man was having an affair with an Italian woman.

One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant.

Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum of money to go to Italy and secretly have the child.

If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18.

She agreed, but asked how would he know when the baby was born. To keep it discrete, he told her to simply mail him a post card, and write ‘Spaghetti’ on the back. He would then arrange for the child support payments to begin.

One day, nine months later, he come home to his confused wife. “Honey!”, she said “you received a very strange post card today.”

He said ‘just give it to me and I will explain later’.

She watched as he read the card, turned white and fainted.joke-Day

On the card was written: Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti Three with meatballs, two without…send extra sauce

Now That is a Spaghetti Dinner!

Are you an In-e or an Out-e?

belly buttonNo, not your belly button silly.

Although, that would have probably made a funnier post.


No, I’m talking about ~~ Are you an introvert or an extrovert?


Basically introverts get their “energy” by being alone and recharging themselves. Extroverts get their “energy” from others. They get joy and excitement out of being around others.

If given a chance, introverts would prefer to be alone doing what they love (can be anything, reading, TV, computer, gardening, doesn’t matter). While extroverts would prefer to P A R T ~ aaaaa. They love to be around others and the thought of being alone drives them batty.

If there is a party going on, the extroverts love to be the first ones there and the last to leave. Introverts are thinking of every reason to get out of the sill thing. “Cough, cough, I think I feel a cold coming on.”

Extroverts see a crowd of people and start to salivate at the thought of joining them. Introverts hyperventilate at the thought of having to join them.

I am an introvert. However, I will get folks to disagree when I tell them. Why? Shouldn’t it be obvious?

I wish it was. Turns out there are a lot more folks like me. We have learned to succeed in the work place by giving speeches, teaching people, or even getting involved in a conversation or two.

What you don’t see is our internal dialog shouting for us to RUN!  

Sure we can have fun, but in our head we are already looking forward to getting home and turning off all the noise around us.

So, are you an In -e or an Out-e?

Are You Sure You Want to Bungee Jump?

Let’s Go Bungee Jumping in Mexico


bungee jumpTwo guys are bungee-jumping one day. The first guy says to the second. “You know, we could make a lot of money running our own bungee-jumping service in Mexico.”

The second guy thinks this is a great idea, so the two pool their money and buy everything they’ll need – a tower, an elastic cord,  insurance, etc.

They travel to Mexico and began to set up on the square. As they are constructing the tower, a crowd begins to assemble. Slowly, more and more people gather to watch them at work.

Once they complete the tower, and announcement is made in Spanish and the first guy jumps.

He bounces at the end of the cord, but when he comes back up, the second guy notices that he has a few cuts and scratches. Unfortunately, the second guy isn’t able to catch him, he falls again, bounces, and comes back up again.

This time, he is bruised and bleeding. Again,the second guy misses him. The first guy falls again and bounces back up.

This time, he comes back pretty messed up – he’s got a couple of broken bones and is almost unconscious. Luckily, the second guy finally catches him this time and says, “What happened? Was the cord too long?”

The first guy says, “No, the cord was fine, but what the hell is a pinata?”

Cell Phones are Taking Over the Taco Bell

I Wish One Little Girl Would Just Eat Her Phone


taco bellSo, during a hard day’s work, I slip off for some lunch time at my local Taco Bell. I have a special love for Taco Bell as it was my first job. But that is another story for another day.

I get my quesadilla (I highly recommend the spicy, shredded chicken quesadilla) and slide into my booth to enjoy some peace and quiet. Or did I???

Not 2 minutes later a loud voice starts booming throughout the lobby. Some laughter and music. My head snaps up and notice the little girl in front of me is watching some show on her cell phone.  Her mother oblivious to how loud and obnoxious this is to everyone in this packed lobby.

Soon the little girl isn’t even looking at the screen as she is lost in her tacos. The phone pushed aside yet still as loud as possible.

I look around to see if everyone else is shooting daggers into this mother who doesn’t realize she is raising a brat who has no respect for others.

eating on phoneSo what do I see?  Family of 6 to the right, all 6 on their cell phones! Yes, mom, dad and their 4 bambinos. Next table, all on cell phones. Next table, all on their cell phones.

OMG, I turn to see that no one is bothered by this horrendously rude show blasting because their noses are so buried in their own phones.

I stop and count…..12,13,14,wow 15 people in this lobby and I’m the only one not on my cell phone! Crazy!

Ok, I must confess. Soon as I polished off the quesadilla I too was on my cell phone. Yep, it was Candy Crush time.

Fine, I’m one of “those” people.

Hey, but at least I’m not blasting my phone and forcing everyone to listen to it!

Listen, bury your nose in phone, just don’t shove it down my ears!
