Sometimes I am afraid to mentally verbalize
The things that I want.........
I hold private superstitions

The thought will stay in my soul
But I don't dare project the outcome
I am afraid
That if I do
I will jinx it

So its like having a sneeze at the tip of my nose
That NEVER comes out
Only I know it is there
I alone feel it.....

In the old days
It was thought
That when you sneezed
The devil was bothering you
And the sneeze blew the evil away

I could sure use a good sneeze.........

Smoke makes me sneeze

In the old days,
They burned incense
To ward away evil spirits

Cats make me sneeze

In the old days
Cats were thought to be familiars
Of people who dabbled in the black arts


You guessed it!
Makes me sneeze
I do like it,
But never use it on my food

Maybe I should hang around with
A smoking cat
Who uses lots of pepper...........

Have a long sneezing fit.........
Forget about my superstitions

Oh, how funny! Great write, Anita. Did you know that people with allergies do not react to ferrets? It's true. They neither have dander nor do they shed. But, before rushing out to buy one, do your homework first. They require special handling and care. ~~Bonnie Q

Anita, two of five my cats smoke, and they really like pepper on their food. Both of my dogs went cold turkey on the smoking. Now, they just eat cold cigarette butts; aids in digestion they believe. Want me to send my two smokers over for the Holidays?! They are also adept at Black Magic.
