Tips when drinking

14 Jun

Top tip for all you guys and gals out there. Try not to sneeze into your glass of ginger beer when you are a mere nanosecond away from taking a mouthful of drink. Unfortunately I have just discovered what happens if you are taken by a surprise sneeze. “What happens?” I hear you ask… Well, if you actually have your face inside the glass as I did, you’ll be more than likely to involuntarily shake the glass as you sneeze, leading your very fizzy and sticky drink to froth up significantly into your face. You will also lose a large portion of your drink onto your new trousers, sofa, floor and dog.

The only thing that would have made it even better would be if someone else other than me and the dog had been there to witness the whole thing. Sadly it was just me laughing into a ginger beer soaked tea towel and Tess who clearly thinks I’m a couple of dog food tins short of a six pack…

Right, I’m off to wash my face because I have sticky eyebrows.

    I once felt a sneeze coming on whilst cleaning my teeth and thought I’d go with the flow and see what happened. What happens is that toothpaste goes up your nose and it burns like mustard. Don’t be tempted to try sneezing down a bassoon during an orchestra rehearsal either. Conductors don’t like that.

      You see, now I just want to get a bassoon and have a go at that!
