I Say "Bless You" When Somebody Sneezes

    Reflex

    I was raised to always say "bless you" to sneezers, so by now it is purely reflexive.  And anyway, who couldn't use an extra bit of blessing???

    Even In the Grocery Store

    I'm looking at shampoo the other day and the stockboy behind me sneezes.  Without even missing a beat, I say "Bless You".  He turns around, and gives me this look, like I'm some sort of crackpot, and says, "What??". Is this like a dead saying? ...

    When Someone's Sputtering, Spitting, Runny Nosed, Suffering . . . It's the Least I Can Do

    I Do Not Even ...

    ... think about it anymore. It is now just a habit which has developed. If I hear someone sneeze, regardless of the venue, I always say bless you. I also say "Excuse me" when I sneeze, even when I am alone. It is just a good habit which has developed.

    To be honest I sleep nude unless I have to share sleeping quarters with someone. In which case I usually opt for tank top and undies.

    I never say how I really feel about something. I keep everything bottled in and it makes upset that I have no one to express to sometimes.
