Pulling a finger can reduce blood pressure

Good medical research is always interesting...

"Stinky farts may help regulate blood pressure: Gas relaxes the blood vessels to prevent hypertension in mice, study finds"

Put this in the category of "news I need to pass along to my dad", the originator of all "pull my finger" episodes in our house.

Wow, And I thought it just relieved atmospheric pressure in the room by forcing someone to open a window. Amazing what you learn here.

My personal term for what-we-women-don't-do is "Rose Petals"
as in "Look out, Rose Petals is on the loose".

I recall one night when the cat (sleeping next to me under the covers) bailed out.

Thought that's what good southern belles termed the vapors. As in "Lawsie me, I do declare i have the vapors something awfull this evening Brett". "That being the case, you rest easy here Miss Scarlett - I'll meander out and shoot me some Yankees".

This sounds like license to self medicate...

"but honey, you do want me to keep my blood pressure down, right?"

That explains it. When I lived in a duplex, the neighbors' window sometimes blew out in high winds. Now I know, it was due to a failure to pull their St. Bernard's paw, forcing them to remember to open a window.

That's why I love dogs and cats; usually they have a high tolerance and seem to enjoy everything they sniff. If a cat bails out, wow, powerful stuff.
