ever wondered what i look like (or sound like) when….. May 1, 2008

Filed under: i am an interesting creation... — kgarrard @ 3:24 am

i am having such an allergy attack that my nose becomes a whistle??

my eyes become a faucet?

or, my throat becomes so scratchy and husky i sound like a man?

well…. here it is….

this is me today and tonight.  it’s ridiculous.

we had our marriage class tonight.  it is such a precious group of people sharing and growing together.  and while we are having this intimate time of baring our souls to each other, i am in the back of the room dealing with my sniff that sounds like a stinkin’ train whistle.  ok, more like the whistle that capt. von trapp used for his kids on the sound of music.  toot tweet toot tweet!!  ugh!

even worse (maybe!), as my classmates were stealing sideways glances at me — “nose whistle girl” — wiping my eyes incessantly, they must have thought i was so touched by the sharing (which i was!!!) but…. really my eyes were so watery that anyone sharing looked like they were swimming from my perspective.

so, good grief!!  i need for this allergy attack to move on before all of the dogs in the neighborhood start responding to my sniffer! 

tootles!!  🙂
