I thought I was alone as I was walking down steps and about to cross a parking lot. I sneezed twice, and from behind a line of trees and shrubbery I heard a woman's voice say, "Bless you!" Surprised, my only reaction was, "Ha, thanks!" I don't know where she was or what she was doing there, but it is certainly wacky to respond to a stranger's sneeze at such a distance through a vegetative buffer.
Anecdotes like these are why I started Athens World, right?
