Suck day

Category: Life

So, today was a pretty bad day. I was watching Dr. Phil, Las Vegas meth-head tunnel-dwellers. Really, just this mom who abandoned her four kids to go live in a storm tunnel with a fellow she met in rehab, who she married. They had a pet rat, a ferret, a big bed, and a lot of junk that would wash away every rain, backpacks clothes, whatever they’d collected. I was, you know, riveted, but all of a sudden I was breathless. I couldn’t breathe. My vent started alarming, and I could not get my chest muscles to move. The vent wasn’t doing its job. A hose fell off.

Obviously, I didn’t die, but it reminded me why I always feel time.

    I’ve seen shows about those crazy Vegas tunnel-folk… Bizarre stuff! Alas, try as he might, that bastard Dr. Phil can’t kill you off!
