So I snore. I've snored for many years much to the frustration of those who may be sharing a room with me. I try to be accommodating about the whole thing by making sure I have plenty of earplugs to pass out. Even so I still have to hear all about the racket I make while slumbering the next morning.
Well, today I learned all about something called the Mallampati score. It's a way of classifying the anatomy of one's oral cavity. There are 4 possible classes that one's oral cavity can fall into. The preferred is Class 1 but most people fall under Class 2.
I'm a Class 3 gal. So yeah, that's why I snore. The doctor who explained the whole thing to me today was very kind when he told me where I fell on the scale. After explaining the whole thing in detail he added, "it's not your fault-it's just your anatomy."
You're speaking to the congregation doc. I've been trying to tell my friends that for years!
