Today Julianna said she thinks there should be something you say to acknowledge coughs. The way you say “Bless you” or “Gesundheit” or, in the case of my friend Jane’s mom, “Star Trek” when someone sneezes. I suggested:
May the blessings of Our Mother Earth be upon you (accompanied by some weird hand motion)
Dude, have you seen someone about that?
What say the rest of you?
