Sometimes people do say "Hmm, somebody's talking about me!" when they sneeze.
And I think most of the Japanese people know the similar lines to these ones below:
一 ほめられて (ichi horerarete)
二 けなされて (ni kenasarete)
三 惚れられて (san horerarete)
四 風邪をひく (yon kaze wo hiku)
When you sneeze once, somebody's saying good things about you.
When you sneeze twice, somebody's speaking badly of you.
When you sneeze three times, somebody's fallen in love with you.
When you sneeze four times, you've caught a cold.
And I know some of the superstitions mentioned above!
The cow one was what my mother used to say after meals when I was a
child..."Get up! You'll become a cow!"
