When I was a kid, I used to love playing with transformers. I was electrocuted three times.
Transformers were and still are all the rage. It’s fun for the kids to see their car, truck or other things turn into a destructive robot.
That leads me to a question. Why do we need to say bless you, following every sneeze? After a cough, which spreads much more germs than a sneeze does. The reason goes all the way back to the days of the plague.
Since the plague is long gone, why urge the blessing following a sneeze? People will actually be offended if they don’t get their blessing following a sneeze. Here’s the point that is very confusing. Most of us sneeze more than once. If someone sneezes three times, when do we wish them a blessing?
There is a saying that is ridiculous. When someone wants to avoid something or someone, they say “I’m going to avoid it/them like the plague. That’s stupid. How hard is it to avoid the plague in this day and age? If someone said “I’m going to avoid it/them like the flu, West Nile virus, that would make sense.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must plan a way to avoid consumption.
