Feel the love Part 2


I have something called atypical asthma. I don't wheeze -- I cough. I cough a lot. After I exercise, if I go outside and it's cold, if peaches are in season -- I cough. If I get sick, I get a cough that needs an exorcist and an act of congress to get rid of. My airways are more volatile than Charlie Sheen.

The other day I coughed and Eve, lying on her tummy looking at a book, said, without looking up, "Yeah, you've been coughing most of my life, because of your fake asthma."

Humph.

Tsk. Tsk. Fake asthma. Shameful. I didn't actually know about atypical asthma. I guess because it's atypical.

I remember as a kid I'd go to the public library (where my mother worked), and track her down by the sound of her coughing. It was a two-story 25K square foot space. Maybe she has fake asthma, too.

Dude, you're not allergic to your cat are you?

I used to have fake asthma until a doctor convinced me I should get rid of my cat because I had adult onset cat allergy. It totally worked. I was shocked, as I grew up with cats.

Do you even have a cat? What is an ex-cat? Is it a cat that thinks it's a people?
