Gesundheit

Gesundheit

 Another bit of eavesdropping gold:

“I found out why people say ‘bless you’ when people sneeze. Turns out people used to believe your soul would be pushed out of your body through your nose and the Devil would try to catch it when that happened. Saying ‘bless you’ would thwart him.

“I thought it was hilarious.”
