Why the trail of ellipses?
Because, even as a writer, it’s impossible to find a word that describes the sound I’m thinking of.
The sound of snot-filled nasal passages. The sound of snuffling, sneezing, wheezing chestiness. The sound, in other words, of a Part-time Writer snoring because of Porglet Maximus germs…a sound that’s filling Lovely Boyfriend’s nights. A sound he’ll be reproducing himself in a few days, seeing as I’ve infested him with said germs.
The closest I can come to describing through noise is this:
You know when surgeons ask for suction on a hospital drama and this machine starts sucking and sputtering the blood away? Turn the blood to snot…
The ironic thing is that I feel HEAPS better than earlier in the week and I’m sleeping better too! Poor Lovely Boyfriend.
Hope your weekend is quieter!
