Crikey, I sound like Andy Rooney without the thatched eyebrows.
Some people sneeze when they walk out into bright light. My beloved sneezes when she takes the first sip from a glass of Bailey's. Just the very first one, then she's okay.
But what is it about the house lights going down at the theater that makes people have to cough? Lights down. Music up. Actors on. Cue the sanitarium sound effects. Yeesh.
