A steamy situation

No, not that kind, unfortunately.

On Sunday, I did everything I could think of.

First, I avoided eating or drinking anything, including water, in the hope of avoiding an asthma attack.

Then, I did everything that I thought might cause an asthma attack because of bending over and/or physical exertion: I shaved my legs, then scrubbed the sink, john, and bathtub.

Since I had, up to that moment, managed not to have an asthma attack, I thought that I could safely get into the shower, so into the shower I went.

Well, as they said in the movie ads, "Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water . . . " In a million years, it would never have occurred to me that water vapor could cause an asthma attack! From now on, I'll make sure to plunk my emergency inhaler on the side of the sink before I hop into the tub for a scrub.

Maybe I'll sing "Just Breathe" while I'm there. :)

I've decided to follow my father's example and keep a sense of humor about whatever ails me.

So I told the hubster that I'm good at thinking of new and exciting ways to make myself sick. :)

And then I told him that he's such handsome guy, he takes my breath away. :)

Necessity being the mother of invention, I may yet succeed in transforming myself into a "sunny-sider," after all.
