Post-Sneeze Retort

When someone sneezes near you, what is your post-sneeze retort?

I still use “God bless you,” although I use “Gesundheit” on occasion. With flair!

I like the Spanish "!salud!" because I refuse to acknowledge this "God" character.

I use bless you rather than Gesundheit. People will think I am being too German if I say the latter.

As this page was downloading, I sneezed twice! I am serious. And no one said anything.

I usually use "God Bless You" because I refuse to acknowledge this ignorant rob character!

Matt, that would've been more humorous if you used "God" as your From name.

Paul-
that would have been great, but I didn't want to go by an alias like jennifer garner.

My roommate always tries to save time and says just "bless," to which I usually reply "thank."

I usually say bless you or god bless you whatever comes out.. of my mouth when someone sneezes.

I usually say "Whoa! Nice and wet! Next time, try a tissue instead of sneezing into your bare hand."

I prefer to offer a "post-sneeze hug" on occasions when a sneeze is particularly traumatic and in my close vicinity.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
