It's about 2:30 and I'm in bed - or rather I was in bed before I got up to write this blog - unable to sleep because of stress or my bad sleeping habits over the past week or the cup of coffee I had at about 8:00 tonight, when I sneeze. My brother and his friend are upstairs watching a movie or something, and they don't say bless you. Now, I'm a fairly loud sneezer (sneezer being a word that I kind of doubt is in any dictionary but means "one who sneezes") and you can hear every sound in made in every part of the house in every other part of the house, so I bet they heard me. I think there are several reasons why they may not have said "bless you" 1) they actually didn't hear me over the the movie and our extremely loud heater, 2) they didn't want to yell "bless you" from upstairs, or 3) they think I'm sleeping.

Which brings me, finally, to the question I have for tonight: Can you sneeze in your sleep?

...Well, can you? Have you ever thought about this? If you did sneeze while you were sleeping, you'd probably wake yourself up (unless you have one of those tiny little imploding sneezes that makes everyone look at you worriedly like your head might explode because you didn't let your sneeze out). And if you wake up when you sneeze, I don't really think that counts as sneezing in your sleep. And if you sneezed and didn't wake up, presumably you wouldn't know, because, of course, you were sleeping. Unless someone told you you were sneezing in your sleep. Now, I've never been told that I sneezed in my sleep. Have you? So, based on this admittedly woefully insufficient evidence that proves absolutely nothing, I've come to the conclusion that no, you cannot sneeze in your sleep.

I think I've exhausted this subject. I'm going to try and go back to bed.
