    Because you can try to imagine a life totally different. I could never picture myself as a sheriff, and if by chance I was one, maybe it would be cool to distance myself from the reality of the job?

    Kinda sounds suspiciously like karma, though?

    Don't all sheriffs die of something?

    It was once believed that the soul temporarily left the body when a person sneezed.

    Blessing the sneezer was alleged to prevent a demon or the devil from taking charge before the soul could return.

    So be careful not to sneeze over your left shoulder because the Devil is sitting there.

    Learning, and new borns are curses. When we can be knowing, and be loving.

    Indeed. I once had an old Gypsy Lady stick me with a textbook on the Fundamentals of Algebra and a 1-day old baby.
    To this day, I still carry them around, unable to break the curse.
