The sneeze detector idea was good in theory, but the result has been something of a disappointment. An outbreak of the cold virus has led to much more sneezing going on in the village than I anticipated. Instead of giving those bifurs a little shock, I have managed to singe Sergeant Valdek's prizewinning moustache, set fire to the village Christmas tree and given quite a few of the unfortunate villagers a bit of a surprise.
Fireman Pospisil had quite a busy day of it yesterday, dealing with burning hats and baffled victims. As an apology I shall gift a hog roast to the village carol service.
