Greetings, cold and allergy sufferers:
I'm in good health currently, but I do sneeze quite a bit, bringing down the rafters, as one sister exclaimed at the KH. Apart from that, no JW ever acknowledged my clearing out . . . whatever.
Now, in the presence of genteel ladies -- I am not exclusive as to the recipient of my sneezes -- I receive a kindly, "Goodness! God bless you!" after each one of my expulsions. Often, up to six. So, while in the midst of gasping for breath, the earth giving beneath my feet, I, the gentleman I am, am compelled to croak out four to six feeble thank yous.
Don't ever sprinkle pepper on your meal if I'm within 20 feet. My last polite exclamation will be:
Thank you . . .
