The one Michael McIntyre left out

Whatever you think of Michael McIntyre, he’s got some great lines and stories to tell. One of my favourites is his story about a bus driver leading a group of people in the snow up to Muswell Hill when the bus itself isn’t running.

But the one I was reminded of today is his ‘laugh snort sneeze and mini-sick” routine. See

Today I discovered that little people have their own version of this that combines the two – the vomit sneeze. It comes about from consuming a lot of breast milk and not all of it being digested. Little bits get vomited up now and then.

And little people do a great sneeze and every time they do one it looks like they’ve sneezed for the first time: ‘what was that?’ their faces say.

So today’s surprise was the one that Michael McIntyre didn’t cover in his routine, the vomit sneeze. It comes when there’s a small amount of vomit that comes out of the mouth instantaneously followed by a sneeze.

As I was facing a little person today, I was on the receiving end of a vomit sneeze and ended up with small spots of sick all over my shirt.

There’s only one suitable reaction to this – have a chuckle and then reach for the nearest muslin cloth.
