Courthouse regulars know the signs: the trembling fingers, the sniffle, the telltale blow of the nose.

I don’t. Might be gross. Kind of like that photo of the two fag navy women swapping spit. One of them was trying to act like a man.

A sharp ‘man up!’ and a hard smack to the back of the head would suffice.
