(Oh good, lots of responses, somebody must have asked… somebody must have asked… nobody asked. Seriously?)

Ah, if you don’t mind me asking, Jancee Dunn, how did your husband stop his screezes? Or at least moderate them? Mine drive my wife crazy, and my only reliable mitigation tactic is to shove my face full into my elbow. It muffles the noise (like firing a pistol through a pillow) but the back pressure hurts my ears. Enough so that I let my coworkers suffer when I have a bad sneeze.

I agree with your article, mostly because my wife and I have been doing this for twenty years. My second marriage, her third, so it’s not like mutual respect is inherent!
