of things very weird

On a completely unrelated note to the rantry below, my friend and I once discovered this weird thing about Karachi and Lahore and I would like to share. :D

In Karachi, when you get a single hiccup, legend has it that someone’s missing you. But in Lahore, people only say that about sneezes, not hiccups.
I wonder where the legend got twisted and how :)

    Being from karachi no wonder I didn’t get it in Bride and Prejudice when aishwarya told that guy about sneezing. Hehe and i thought it must be different in India. Turns out it’s a Punjab thing.
