What’s in a Name
Chapter Four of Nine
An important facet of any Hospital Clown is one’s name. That helps develop the character and the back-story.
The name was inspired by Mom’s love of A.A. Milne’s children’s classic, “Winnie-the-Pooh.” In the book, Now We Are Six, there is a poem titled, “Sneezles” wherein Christopher Robin comes down with “wheezles and sneezles.” Using the poem as his muse, Dr. Sneezles was born!
A “Sneeziology” practice was invented: “The Wheezles and Sneezles Group.” Their tagline, “We knows noses.” And the practice is STRICTLY limited to the nose; wouldn’t want to cross disciplines.
Laughter is the best medicine…unless you’re really hurt, then you should call 911.
