    Calvin is lucky he breathed in after that first sneeze before he rocketed out of the atmosphere.

    A dirt allergy?

    Is Calvin’s comment in panel 2 referring to his handkerchief, or to his head?

    It’s probably a good thing he doesn’t know about the original superstition, that a sneeze was caused by a demon flying up your nose and trying to possess you; people would say “God bless you” to prevent the demon from making a second attempt. Think of the mayhem he’d cause if he had the excuse of being demon possessed!

    Actually, from what I’ve heard, people said that because sneezing is the final symptom of the Bubonic Plague, so people who were sneezing were often about to die.

    On a side note, people believed that you should cover your mouth when you yawn because the devil would fly in through your mouth.
