Jacaranda Tree
As soon as I saw these early-blooming Jacaranda flowers I knew I was going to be in for a long and painful season of allergies! I love this big old tree and the beautiful carpet of purple it creates all over the road and grass but boy, does it make me sneeze! The whole family seems to be suffering at the moment; Maddy had to take an antihistamine this morning, Big Al has had watery eyes and even Mr Attorney, who apparently doesn't believe in allergies, was unbelievably itchy on Sunday after a long morning in the garden.  I am sure that everyone is sick of my constant sneezing, which range from polite and genteel little squeaks to loud and explosive ACHHOOOOOS!!! What sort of sneeze do you have? Did you know that your sneeze can apparently reveal quite a lot about your personality.....

Patti A.Wood is a body language expert who has analysed the different ways people sneeze in the Achoo IQ Study (for Benadryl of course!) and then classified the sneezes into four personality types: the nice sneezer, the "be right" sneezer, the "get it done" sneezer and the enthusiastic sneezer. For example, if you turn away when you sneeze, Wood would classify you as a "nice sneezer" and you are warm, helpful, supportive and nurturing of others. The "get it done" sneezers, are apparently fast, decisive and to the point. Who always keeps tissues handy and covers your mouth when you feel a sneeze coming? You are the "be right" sneezers and you are deep thinkers and you are careful and accurate. I seem to be falling into the last category lately, the"enthusiastic" sneezer. Wood says that these are the sneezers you can't help but notice and they have been found to be charismatic, social and they have the ability to motivate others. Hmmm...

A full description of each personality type can be found here. I hope you find it as fun to read and as interesting as I did!

I am pretty sure that, if you will be quite honest, you will admit that a good rousing sneeze, one that tears open your collar and throws your hair into your eyes, is really one of life's sensational pleasures.  ~Robert Benchley, "Hiccoughing Makes Us Fat," No Poems: or around the world backwards and sideways, 1932 .
