Bless you!


I walk down a busy street in London and I happen to sneeze. An older lady in the crowd smiles at me and says bless you. I immediately think ”this would never happen in Sweden”.

A month later I walk down a not-so-busy street in Gothenburg. A man happens to sneeze. Another man says prosit (the Swedish equivalent to bless you). I immediately think ”this could happen in Sweden after all”. But when the man walks past me, I get a whiff of alcohol in my face. I change my mind to ”this only happens in Sweden if you’re drunk”.
