What a satisfying simile for something being agreeable, like the ease and relief of a successful sneeze. How odd that this simile has come to the fore just as we are at home isolating ourselves from pandemic, and sneezes are not to be sniffed at.

Be sneeze-free and virus-safe.

‘A common experience, agreeable as a completed sneeze.’
