Air! Give Me Air! Just call me "Inhaler Boy"!


My new name "Inhaler Boy". Welcome to the blog of "Inhaler Boy & Allergy Girl". Forget Jack and Cat. Sorry we have not posted in a few. Been more than under the weather. I have been hiding under it and away from it. I became quite ill and crept into a little dark cave. But now- I feel better! After many days of not being able to breathe, fevers, chills, and nose rag! I am out! It started a few weeks ago. It was hard to pin down- weather change- new cat- lots of painting-chemicals- spray paint, etc. But really- it was a big bad cold. My asthma came back with a vengeance. It hasn't been that bad since my grand days of choose your own adventure books, dancing on my bed to Kenny Loggins, and looking like a total nerd. The days of fourth grade. Heres a pic- it will only be posted for a few days- so enjoy! Yes! My parents didn't love me. Proof- the picture. My parents actually let me leave the house looking like this- Oh yes! I have more of these pics. These were the days of Mike Mayonnaise. A fun nickname! How big are those glasses?



Anyway- my immune system crumpled- due to allergies-chemicals-cat- dust-rust solution-George Bush- dirty filters-OJ Simpson-new haircut- stress eating-(and of course) Britney Spears.

Seriously-my body crashed- starting sucking on my inhalers, couldn't sleep, couldn't breathe. Best example my class at Mystic Paper last Saturday- I thought that I was going to pass out trying to get info to my fantastic, creative, beeswax lovin students. You were a great group and I appreciate it! If for any reasons you have questions that I wasn't able to share in class- please email me and drop a note!

So after several days of coughing, wheezing, doctors, home remedies, antibiotics, and several inhalers.
I emerge! Still have symptoms- but better. Lesley on the other hand- she's starting where I was a couple of days ago. Not good. Coughing, sneezing, sounding like Darth Vader - If I could just find that outfit down below? Hmm...

So I hope you like my little art piece on the top. I made it special based on the last few days. I will post again later tonight.... more to share... but I just thought- I 'd let you know I'm STILL ALIVE. The one thing about being sick- is when you get better you have a need to kick life in the ass -and then take a big bite of it! So I got my boots on and my teeth are ready! Adios...

Come on Mom & Dad! Where's the love? I do have to admit I have many a photo where it is obvious that my Mom used a bowl to cut my hair. Glad you lost the Thelma glasses! (Scoobie Do's Thelma that is)- jw
