stone #10

downstairs I hear regular sneezing.
each time my wife sneezes,
i shout "bless you" and she replies "thank you",
our voices echoing through the house,
the walls familiar with the stories of our marriage.

A cute, homely cameo! Sneezing almost sounds romantic!

Been there, done that!

I could see it. Great capture of a moment. :-)

Thanks for your words - I once read a book in which a character believed that if she sneezed one hundred times consecutively without being blessed, then she would die. So, I am careful to bless my dear wife when she sneezes ;)

Incidentally the book is "Gold" by Dan Rhodes...
