My mother sneezes in threes. It’s bizarre and uncanny, but reliable. You don’t offer her a sneeze-related salutation before the third sneeze – it’s just prudent to wait it out.
I sneeze no less than three at a time. I have never in my recollection ever sneezed just once. It’s usually in the neighborhood of 6-12. My record is over 30 in one sitting – I was driving at the time. It was…exciting.
I’m not sure if sneezing can be genetic, but I’d like to make the case that it is.
When your father and I brought you home from the hospital, we took you around the house and introduced you to your new domain. In response you let out a barrage of little baby sneezes – one right after the other.
We just laughed. “Well,” your father said, “at least we know we brought home the right kid. He is definitely yours!”
Definitely. And Gesundheit.
