Oh, so it’s a *girl* house

9 Oct

 

My husband has an enormous uvula.  *eyebrow bounce*

This morning Jordan woke up with a sore throat.  After a few minutes of talking to me, he paused with this “deer in the headlights” look on his face.

My uvula feels swollen.  *pause*  It feels weird!

Of course I can’t hear the word “uvula” without thinking of that scene in Monster House where the children discover that the house is actually alive.  The carpet running up the stairs is its tongue and the chandelier is it’s uvula.  Without missing a beat, one the children exclaims:

Oh, so it’s a *girl* house.

Totally inappropriate for children, but thankfully mine aren’t old enough to catch the adult humor.  It makes me giggle every time.

All humor aside, Jordan’s uvula is actually enormous.  When he opens his mouth it lies on his tongue like a dog relaxing by a fire.  Apparently this can be caused by snoring.  (Ah-ha! ) So I was justified for poking him so much in the night.  The man snored for what seemed like an eternity last night.  He gets irritable with my when I try to poke him awake in an attempt to stop his snoring.  Funny enough, the one time that I cannon-balled the bed with my body, he didn’t wake up at all.  Hmm…

A quick Google search suggest chewing 2-3 cloves of garlic to alleviate the swelling.  Thanks, Google.  You’re ever so helpful.
