When one gets a “tickle in the throat” shouldn’t it cause a laughing fit rather than a coughing fit?

Though, it is probably easier to forgive someone speaking on the phone that gets a coughing fit.  Laughing uncontrollably in the middle of a conversation won’t pass if you say, between giggles, “sorry, I had a tickle in my throat.”

The Small Richard

My least favorite article of clothing is the dickey.  It was when I was 8 years old and it still is today.

It’s a deceitful little thing that fakes the observer into believing that I’m wearing a full sweater under my jacket when in reality it’s a barely half-sweater with no arms.  Moo-hoo-ha-ha….

Let’s face it…it’s just dumb AND it’s called a DICKEY!  Ultimately, I believe the main reason I don’t like it is because it’s called a DICKEY!  I guess they named it that because it was deficient and inadequate and couldn’t compete with all the real sweaters out there.

I don’t know…I guess I’m being immature about it but I can’t help but think that I might have had a different opinion of it if it was called a studley.
