Sympathy or Empathy?

2014-4-17

When I lived on the great Canadian prairies, I had asthma.  Probably because of the dust, but more likely due to the fact that I was born in a city with 3 coal burning power-plants.

Now that I live on the west coast (ish)…  I don’t really have problems with asthma.  What I DO have problems with is CHRONIC SINUSITUS!  (Just imagine that said with a bit of reverb added for effect).  It rains for days, then it’s sunny for days.  All that changing weather/barometric whatever really wreaks havoc on the ol sinus cavities!

Do I ask for your sympathy?  no.  Do I expect you to be informed of all my ailments?  Nope!  So why did I just write a blog post about it?  …GOOD QUESTION!  I guess I’m just another dude on the internet complaining about stuff.  So here are three positive things that have happened recently:

1)  Josie, my 4 month old daughter, smiles at me when she realizes who i am!
2)  Coffee, my year and a half old puppy, woke me up this morning by standing with all four feet on my face and licking my eye.
3)  Kurt Burr stayed late after youth one night and helped me fix my scooter.  Now, it starts perfectly.

Have a great Maundy Thursday everyone!

2014-1-13two nights ago, diana was picking up her dad from the airport, and on the way back from vancouver they stopped for supper, and picked me up.  They got me some chicken and shrimp carbonera, which is delicious! but probably wasn’t super smart to eat right before bed.  I woke up feeling the need to run a marathon.  But the dreams!  man alive, carbonera gives yah weird dreams!
