Intan : Mrs. Nina, my I ask you some question??
Mrs. Nina : What's is it, dear??
Intan : It's about my dad! Lately, he has been snoring in his sleep. I can hear his snoring from my room. It is pretty loud. Do you know what causes people to snore??
Mrs. Nina : Many things, Intan. People snore because they have allergies, catch a cold, or, probably have a sinus infection. Also, if a person is overweight or drinks alcohol, they are most likely to snore in their sleep.
Intan : Well, my dad isn't overweight and he doesn't drink.
Mrs. Nina : Hahahahahahahaha... I don't say he drinks or being overwieght. I was just telling you some of the reasons why people snore, Intan.
Intan : Is snoring harmful, Mrs. Nina??
Mrs. Nina : No, but only if the reasons are what I have mentioned before. It can be easily cured. But, I know there are people who have surgeries since they have a very deviated septum. It is not only to make them stop snoring but also to help them to breath better.
Intan : What do you mean deviated septum??
Mrs. Nina : It is a condition where the tissue and cartilage that separates the two nostrils in a person's nose is crooked.
Intan : Oh, well. I should tell my dad to visit his doctor.
Mrs. Nina : You definitely should. Snoring is more a symptom than the actual diseases. Give my regards to your father, Intan. I hope he will feel better, soon.
Intan : Thank you, Mrs. Nina. Have a good day!!!
