Spitting

February 16th, 1907

Oddly enough, the ancient Egyptians were quite big on spitting. Yes, you heard me correctly, spitting. Sending saliva shooting from your mouth. Disgusting, no?

They used it as a way to curse someone, and as a means of blessing them. Honestly? I could do without that kind of blessing.

The god Thoth even used spitting as a way to restore sight to the eye of Ra! Can you imagine spitting into the eye of a god?

I would think that would be a very high risk activity…
