SneezyI wonder…

Why don’t we sneeze in our sleep?

We yawn.  We poot.  We scratch.  We talk.  We move.  Some walk.  Some eat.

But we don’t sneeze.

Thoreau wanted to suck out all the marrow of life. Shakespeare reflected through Macbeth that all is shadow, that man struts and frets his hour upon the stage. Frost pondered the road he didn’t take while walking the fence line replacing fallen stones with his neighbor. I am a priest in the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma. I serve at All Saints Episcopal Church in McAlester, OK. This blog is my keepsake box of what I observe and question and craft as I walk my path. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Hmm.. didn’t know our sneezing nerves slept too. Maybe that explains why allergies can be so bad first thing in the morning since we don’t sneeze out the irritants, so they build up during the night. Good to know.

      And I didn’t say “I” eat in my sleep. 🙂 But there are people who sleep-eat. Check out what Dr. Oz says: “Nighttime sleep-related eating disorder (SRED) is classified as parasomnia, a category of sleep disorders that cause a person to do unusual things during sleep such as sleepwalk (somnambulism), scream (night terrors) and wriggle about (periodic limb movement disorder).”

      hmmm… food for thought. *audible groan and face palm*
