I can't breathe

My husband and I were cooking a recipe tonight that involved toasting some spices to bring out the flavour. A word of advice: Don't inhale the fumes released by toasting red pepper flakes. They'll get into your throat and lungs and make you cough, sneeze, and wheeze for a long time. Coughing without inhaling properly will make you light-headed. If the recipe suggests turning on the exhaust fan, do not breathe deeply. You will regret it.
