Do you ever lie awake at night wondering why God gave us two eyes, two ears, two nostrils, two arms, two hands, two legs, two feet, not to mention elbows and knees, yet only gave us one uvula?
I know, you may be wondering why Aaron is stuck on this uvula thing, but this is a concerning issue. We have only one, and still we neglect to be thankful for it. No wonder we weren’t blessed with two.
I am aware that 1 out of every 100 people does have a double uvula – and don’t get me wrong, that’s great. I’m glad they have been privileged with this gift. But what about the thousands of lonely neglected uvulas out there, shut away, alone in the dark. And think of all those people they belong to who don’t even know what a uvula is.
What is there not to love about a plump little fleshy lobe dangling amidst our saliva?Look at it. Notice it. Love it. Let it know you care. Be at one with our little friend. He wants to be friends with you. Make time for it. Learn about its history. Write a journal entry or two. Why not check out someone else’s uvula. Get a friend for the little guy. Take turns looking at each other’s uvulas. Make it a social event. You’ll be glad you did.
