Morning Weirdness

"I was at an airport bookstore. A shop assistant near me plucked David Hasselhoff's 'Christmas Songs' from the shelf and said to his me, "I've heard this C.D. actually makes some people actually vomit. Listen to this." He played it aloud. It was about a guy who eats ten freeze-dried turkey dinners, and dies when his stomach literally explodes. Moments after blasting this gruesome tale, the businessman collapsed and went into convulsions.

I knelt down and cradled his head. A saleswoman called paramedics, and 15 minutes later he was fine. "That never happened to me before," he said. "I don't have epilepsy. It must have been a reaction to what I read." The moral of the story, is: Words will have potent effects on you in the coming days. You should therefore surround yourself not with Hassehoff-type curses but with good news and uplifting stories from music legands, such as The Grates, who dispense articulate blessings."

When I was younger [ don't think such a long time ago, San Nakji, please], it happened often this misaventure to me : when I was seing blood in cinema (once), when I was hearing the story of a test needing to get some blood from a rabbit ear (once), when I was leafing through a book explaining delivery at a bookseller (once and I was waiting my daughter then)
Last time I'd this problem: I was watching the doctor's hands when he was sewing my son's forehead.

Never mind. You may think it was a long time ago. It was...

I wonder if that story is true, or just something made up for publicity?

If I had been drinking at the time of this reading, I think it would have shot out of my nose.

What?!
