Aside from being able to buy clothes at El Cheapo Men’s Wearhouse… brands like:

…I loved the 4/$10 tee shirts, but HATED the upcharge of $3 a shirt for XXXL. And trying to find 42-44-almost 46 pants in anything but pleated front blah was almost impossible. … I lost a bunch of weight so I could stop paying extra for extra large sizes.
I also lost weight because I thought I could ditch the CPAP.
My friend John was successful. Hate him. He dropped about a hundred and immediately stopped snoring. He refers to the CPAP mask as “the pig nose.”
And he’s right…
I’ve worn a CPAP for a couple decades now. If I don’t, I don’t sleep. Living in the land of frequent power outages, using a CPAP blows, except when it doesn’t – because the power is out!
We have a running joke around here: when the sky is exploding because of a major storm and lightning is bouncing all around us at eye level (love living in the mountains) our power only flickers. And sometimes doesn’t do that.
But give us a nice clear evening with a nice breeze and blammo. No power. Last night was the longest we have been without power: about two hours. Blinked off at 8 p.m. Nancy fired up her iPhone and played Words With Friends and I powered up her Nook and did a couple crossword puzzles.
Nancy eventually fell asleep, but I knew it was futile for me to try. I grabbed my pillow and slipped outside and curled up on the porch swing. I think I snoozed, but it wasn’t long before the power blinked to life and I slipped into my pig nose and drifted off to dreamland.
Hate having the CPAP, but hate the alternative worse.
