non-traditionalist

Sweeping up the hair from the tile floor where our Irish Setters live (a never-ending task) I kicked up enough dust and hair to cause me to let out a big sneeze. Followed by…..silence. I wasn’t raised, nor now live in a household where “gesundheit” or “bless you” were uttered by any or all when hearing someone sneeze. When I’m in a group where someone sneezes I find it almost comical to hear everyone feel like they must add their own blessing to the event. Maybe a new “tradition” is in order. What should a person say, along the lines of ‘bless you’, when they hear another person passing gas?

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.

    Don’t people always feel the urge to exclaim “oh God!” when ever anyone farts?
    That’s sort of praise really.
    Isn’t it?
