What Happens When We Yawn

You know my little one there are very many types of yawns the next time you yawn before you go to sleep or you stretch to wake up from bed or you are just so tired. Think about the yawn that has become so part of your life. The yawn that baffles where does it come from or where does it go. The yawn, the art of the yawn.

Sometimes people have dignified yawns with their mouths closed. Where does that yawn go into their tummy. Sometimes people have very loud and furious yawns that reminds them of Tarzan in the jungle. Who is Tarzan? Oh sorry little one he was before your time he used to swing on the trees in the jungle but I will tell you about him another time. He was a wild man and made these furious noises that sounded just like the yawns of your uncle Billy. Tarzan was a good jungle man.

Now coming back to a little mousy squeaky yawn that comes out before you know it and sneaks in a little squeak. Then there is a majestic Kingly yawn that make people stop and stare Yaaow, Yes that is a mighty big majestic yawn.

Then there is a sparky passing on yawn. You know little one it only takes a spark to light a fire and this yawn starts in a room full of people it starts with one then the other stares, then the one who stares catches on and before you know it the whole room is full of yawning people.

Then you have the Red Indian yawn you know the red Indians used to make a noise with their hands over their mouths and this particular yawn little one will be an Apache Indian yawn.

Then you have a finger clicking yawn, this yawn little one is the Rock and Roll Elvis Presley yawn. I will tell you about the King of rock and roll, finger clicking, shoe stomping Elvis when you come to the time of enjoying rock and roll. By the way son you can have your hair anyway you like it when you grow up, long, short, or spiky but remember the finger clicking Elvis yawn.

Then you have a very sweet, fragile aristocratic lady yawn. Now remember this lady has been suppressing her yawn for a long, long time so she takes out her dainty little handkerchief pretends to give a little cough and out comes the yawn. Ahh the day I wish to see her majesty yawn in public that would be a day to record in history books. Wonder what happens to her little yawns

Now we have the yawn stretch when you see this man yawn stretch his hands towards heaven and give out this good loud yawn. This man is unintentionally saying a little prayer asking God for rest from his tired, long and bored day. Don’t ask me how I know but I just do.

Then you have the absolutely bored yawn , you have this person usually in the waiting rooms of hospitals or at dentists or people waiting at bus stops .They look around, they look at their fingers, they stare into oblivion, they scratch their heads and out comes this bored yawn which sounds bored itself . It is a God given art which functions in the human body at times like these to give boredom a little nudge. These people are completely oblivious to their bored nudges but son I have watched and experienced these bored nudges in that phase of man’s life called boredom.

Then you have the wake up yawn. Ths yawn with your bad breath comes out as you stretch yourself in bed, scratch your weary little head and open your eyes and then yawn. This is a wake up call to those nearby to tell you to brush your teeth but it is also letting out all your air out of your lungs in the morning as you breathe in the fresh new air of the new day in the morning. So let it be a strong loud yawn as you breath in a new day.

Then you have the operatic yaweeeeeoooo that is a Pavarotti opera yawn, that is loud and strong and resonant and frightens the daylights of those who are close. Now my son come close I always wanted to do that in the library but I hope that one day you will do what your heart leads you to do.

So son you will experience a lot of yawns some loud and majestic and see those soft and dainty yawns from the girls in your class but remember the art of the yawn an art that we have no control over but an art that the artist of the yawn created just to make life more special for you and me. So remember the next time you yawn, you are special and every yawn is significant goodnight my little one. Yawn as you live each day.
