folk superstitions
気持: curious
i was taught a lot of these growing up, such as "when your nose itches, it means someone's coming to visit you", "when your palms itch it means you're about to give/get money (depending on which hand)" and "when your ears turn red, someone's talking about you"

the point of all this is that there was one for sneezing too, but i can't remember it. it was either "when you sneeze, someone's thinking about you" or "when you sneeze, someone's criticizing you", but i don't remember which. any of you know?

DUH. Of course you'll be dissappointed if you sneeze three times in succession, because your hanky will be full by then!
