    What happens when...?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    ...you are cruising CoffeeSnobs and savouring a delicious doppio ristretto from some home roasted Monsoon Malabar--and you are suddenly overtaken by an irresistible urge to SNEEZE? :P

    Your computer monitor, keyboard, desk, filing cabinet, and some miscellaneous paperwork all get a good clean! And you have to make another coffee because youve just wasted one. :(

    you are suddenly overtaken by an irresistible urge to SNEEZE? *
    Place your finger to the end of your nose and press in (towards the back of your head).
    Keep pressing for a few seconds and usually the urge to sneeze will go away.

    Another tip is to press your tongue firmly up to the roof of your mouth. Should kill the sneeze long enough to put your cup down.

    I am deeply ashamed at wasting good coffee :-[, and am most grateful for the tips.

    In this instance, however, the urge was followed by the sneeze within less than 1 second. :o

    Ill try to do better next time, I promise.
