Sneezing, the unavoidable prayer

Posted in atheism, Filling Space, Humor with tags , , , on September 18, 2008 by happysphere

It kinnda bothers me when someone says “bless you” after I sneeze. I never really know how to reply. I don’t really think that I’m in my death throes or any other peril that would need a blessing. Besides even if I were I don’t think I would benefit from it.

When someone else sneeze I am at more of a loss. Sometimes I’ll say “bless you” purely on reflex. Sometimes I just ignore it, but I feel kind of rude doing so.

I’d like to know what you think, please take my poll and feel free to add comments
