Just curious...

What do you say when someone sneezes? Does it bother you that "Bless you" is short for "God bless you"? Does it even matter?

I personally prefer "Salud," which is Spanish for "health."

I just say, 'Get away from me you infected cretin!'


I stopped saying "bless you" when I took my first real steps into atheism for exactly that reason. I just ignore the sneeze altogether like I would if the person had coughed.

It really makes you think about how odd of a custom it is.

I usually say gesundheit, which means "good health". My husband refuses to give up "bless you" and even *shutters* "god bless you". Oh well.

I cannot believe that my first post on TA was coaxed out of me by a slanderous devil woman with the same last name and great dane as I. (me? i aint got time for no grammering)

May the Almighty Lord and Savior, through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, bless you each and every time you sneeze, my darling wife.

Be thankful that I am merely toying with the idea of adopting the phrase above as my  automatic sneeze reply. XD

Doesn't look like the same last name to me.  Just saying.

Nice try.

But it will take more than a silver tongue to reveal my true identity to the dangerous atheists of the internets.

Also....I meant shudders....not shutters....ugh.
