#AtoZChallenge One-liner: Y is for Yawn!

Yawn

(verb)

Definition 1:

An involuntary action that is contagious and very hard to suppress, which tends to make regular appearances in the middle of lessons, meetings and conferences, but doesn’t carry deadly consequences like its distant cousin: sleeping.

Covering your mouth is one of the best ways to suppress a yawn. ๐Ÿ˜›

Back in school, I discovered the most ingenious way to cover up yawning. I would drop my pen to the floor and spend an abnormally long time to retrieve it. And no, I was never caught!

Here’s an interesting fact:

Yes. Yawning is contagious. Even videos of people yawning can cause you to experience a yawning session. Don’t believe me? Try it out and see for yourself. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. That happens whenever I’m video calling my mother at night. Both of us will be yawning too much that we end up feeling very sleepy! Guess what? I’m yawning even as I type this message. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿคญ

  1. Haha that dropping the pen thing I started doing when someone told me that yawning is a show of disrespect. But mostly, I just pinch my lips so the yawn doesn’t escape. Ends up making my face look weird ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. That’s true. Waiting till midnight to post in the linky was a tough job. There were days when I was too tired to stay up! But that has come to an end. April seems to have passed in the blink of an eye!

      An accountancy teacher who yawns multiple times! It’s a miracle that you were not sleepy enough to remember that!
