Sneeze (or move) if you Want To

The other day I SNEEZED (click) at work. It was a medium-loud sneeze, not one that is intrusive or disgusting or anything like that. My boss said “bless you.” Well I had to sneeze again immediately following the first sneeze but I didn’t want my boss to say bless you again because THAT would be awkward. I mean, what if I had to sneeze a third time and he had to say bless you AGAIN? So I tried to hold my sneeze in.  I must have thought of holding it in a little too late because what happened was my cheeks filled with air (and literally puffed up) and I let out a phhhh that sounded less like a sneeze and more like a, you know, *toot*.  No one said anything of course, because it’s one of those things you wonder “what was THAT?” without wondering it out loud.  I couldn’t stop laughing about it!

On another note, we're moving!

So, farewell mysterious long-haired Chilean chain-smoker/organ playing neighbor. We'll miss you 6 year old Chinese boy who jumps on a trampoline in the apartment above us.  Goodbye ward members who can't help but think the Gospel should be more complex. See ya strange (but nice) couple a few doors down with a cat.

Goodbye South Provo, HELLO WEST PROVO!

Hello nice landlord and nice landlord's business hooked onto our house. Hello giant construction equipment new neighbors, nice to see you Freeway. Glad to meet you nice fenced in front yard and small deck. We're happy to see you mice in the storage closet. Hi second bedroom that will serve nicely as a craft room, I mean project room. Hola cheaper rent. Hey new ward, and oh, hey brother and sister-in-law Watson who we'll see at church every week! HELLO washer and dryer hookups.

We're excited for a change!
If you see any of these (of the empty variety) let me know!


  1. I saw a couple of them Abby! Though I don't know why you care.
    Have fun in your new place!

  2. Wow! Sounds like a fun change and you even get to be near family. What business are you located next to? I'll have to get your new address.

  3. Ben you are cracking me up. Abby, I love that you sneeze tooted at work. Too funny!

  4. You shouldn't worry because in Spanish the first time one sneezes you say "Salud" (health), the 2nd time you say "Dinero" (money) and the 3rd time you say "Amor" (love). Thus eliminating any potential for awkward situations. So you want to sneeze three times in order to achieve AMOR!

  5. hahahah YOu crack me up! That is so fun thatyou will be in Seth and Rachels ward! Have fun in that cute little house!!!

  6. Abby, I can't stop laughing about about your sneeze. I love your thought process, and I can totally see the whole thing. Thanks for the laugh.
    Love you


Thanks for visiting! Leave me a message...I love them.
