Some years ago, I went through a period of incessant sneezing - all day long. If you lived near me, that's what the sound was that used to awaken you in the morning and keep you awake at night. I experienced day-long sneezing fits about 50 times each year. Then it stopped. It just went away. And I have a theory: It was because the cat died. “Aha!” you say. “You were allergic to the cat.” That was also my first guess. People eagerly bought the explanation. You lived with a cat and sneezed your head off, until the cat died. Then you stopped sneezing. Mystery solved. Maybe. Maybe not/Bill Hall, Lewiston Tribune. More here.
Question: Are you allergic to cats or dogs?
