I had just settled down in bed with a nice cup of tea and my new Evanovich book when it happened… SNEEZE ATTACK!
The first one was so loud and violent it sent sleeping CIA Cat airborne and out of the bedroom before she even fully woke up. I’m sure she found herself in the living room, looking around and thinking WTF?!
That big boy was then followed by a rapid fire of mini sneezes that had me bouncing around the bed as I attempted, and failed, to cover my mouth, hold my tea steady, and stay upright. Snot and tea were flying everywhere in a sprinkler like fashion. My legs had tangled in the sheets leaving my top portion to spasm in all directions.
I felt like those shell-shocked people interviewed after an earthquake “It just kept going and going, I know it was only a few seconds but it felt like hours *sob*”.
The sneezing finally stopped giving me a moment to try to pull myself together. I looked down at my now empty tea cup, wiped my running nose, and attempted to untangle my legs from the damp sheets, when the sneaker hit. Like the first one it attacked without warning, but this one was so violent it caused a complete body convulsion catapulting me off the bed.
I lay face down on the floor with my legs above me still tangled in the bed sheets.
Me: Babe! Little Help!
Hubby: What’s up?
Me … *sigh*… I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!
