Storyline

Rob has had several sneezing bouts throughout the evening. Based on a newspaper article he read, Jerry believes Rob's sneezing is a psychosomatic condition brought about by anger, the most probable cause of that anger - based on the events of the evening - being Laura. Laura too begins to believe that Rob is angry with her. It becomes a vicious cycle where Rob gets angrier the more Laura believes Rob is mad at her, which is made all the worse by Rob continuing to sneeze. After getting allergy tests done and speaking to his doctor, Rob gets it into his head that he really is allergic to Laura, whether it be psychosomatic or physiological, especially as he only seems to be sneezing at home around her. Could it be so? Written by Huggo
