[EdiTOR's Note: The following letter may or may not have been written by my wife but it seems to have been based on actual snoring events.]
Dear Daily ReTORt Readers,
During the 17+ years of marriage to the author of this blog site, I’ve found Tor to be a great husband and wonderful father.
However, he snores.
[EdiTOR's Note: the preceding sentence should read "...allegedly snores..."]
It hasn’t always been that way, just the past few years, and it’s usually not that bad. It’s a little reminiscent of a weak, misfiring, two-stroke mini-bike that sputters to life.
Usually when Tor’s noisy sleep-breathing revs up the volume and wakes me, I’ll lovingly
flick his ear lobe, poke him in the throat, plug his nose so he can’t breathe jostle him and he usually stops.
But since the birth of our son, and the nightly feedings I’m responsible for, Tor’s nuisance snoring has become more of a problem. The inherent parental sleep deprivation that accompanies a newborn is amplified by my husband sawing Zs.
So I humbly ask you gentle reader, what remedies, solutions, options or homespun concoctions have you found to be effective to combat snoring? Your responses are appreciated.
