This is petty, I admit it. And I do feel badly for my husband, but what's driving me up the wall are his coughs. He has a little cold which as usual results in a cough (has seen the doctor and been reassured that, as usual, it's nothing more. His chest is clear). As usual his cough is so loud that if I am in the same room with him, the cough actually hurts my ears. It makes my eardrums actually VIBRATE.
He insists he feels fine and that his chest doesn't hurt or his throat. But it's so incredibly loud that last night I had to sleep in the car in the garage. (I could still hear him, but it didn't keep me awake all night.)
