The Caterpillar and the Hookah…

Just like Alice in Wonderland, but it’s really me. As I progress with this C.O.P.D., I’m left sometimes in stitches. I was just giving myself one of those crazy nebulizer  breathing treatments and I realized just how the noise of the machine kind of lulls me in a trance, so I get a little sleepy and my head will start to nod and the oxygen cannula on my nose will start to pull as my head drops and all I can do is laugh when I get the sudden image of what I look nowadays is that Caterpillar from “Alice in Wonderland”, sucking away on a “Hookah” ( water pipe ).

I guess my days as Alice are over, I just never saw my  “Caterpillar” period coming. Just leaves me laughing! It’s rather like the reverse of the whole butterfly thing. Just run the film backwards.

Then again, if I keep pulling on this cannula the way I do, I could end up looking a lot more like this fairytale guy…


Thanks for stopping by and you guys have a great day!

  2. I think you are Alice and the caterpillar. The wonder of Alice and the knowledge of the caterpillar. One of my favorite stories, by the way.
