*Le Sigh*......Why Do We Sigh ?
« on: 28/08/2008 02:38:58 »
*le sigh*

As a sheepy I am of course an expert sigher !...I tend to sigh in french for some reason *le sulk*..oh and sulk too !!



Look at Charlie Brown here !



He's full of sigh !

So, why do we sigh ?....what purpose does it serve ?...what's the biology of a sigh ?..........is it like a yawn ?...I don't think sighs are contagious like yawns !..or are they ?


But why sigh ?


*le sigh*

I hope someone helps me understand the nature of sighing !

Hugs ya
Shmishes ya

I don't know why we sigh! Just a release of tenseness or stress I think... or exasperation.. or lack of words one wishes to say? Wonder if there is a more scientific reason then those?
