One of my office mates sneezes a lot. It has become an endless source of entertainment for them when I say “bless you.” I get that it must seem odd for them, but I cannot figure out why it is so funny. My only guess is that it sounds like something in Korean or that they think it means something different.
I tried to make myself stop saying it, but I can’t seem to quit. Every one of them sneezes, I sound off like clockwork, and they fall apart. I tried to explain the origin of the phrase today, but that made it even funnier. “You no can die of sneezy.” Yeah, I know…
Until next time.
