I need to sneeze
By Charlena Gu
I need to sneeze because there is too much dust in the room. I am handed a tissue box. I take a tissue from the box. It assaults me with its weird tissue particles. Now there is more dust than before. I need to sneeze. I take a tissue from the box. Tissue particles. Dusty. The tissue particles enter my windpipe. Now I cough instead. There are also tissue particles in my eyes somehow. Irritating. Oh look, I need to sneeze again. More tissues. More of their particles. They are everywhere. Mother now believes that I have caught a virus and wants to schedule a doctor’s appointment. Tissues were a mistake.
