Sleep Apnea

It sounds funny. But it can be dangerous.

Imagine being asleep. Dreaming. Dreaming that you can't breath. Like you're under water. You just can't get air into your lungs. Something in your brain screams WAKE UP AND BREATH!!! When you wake up, you gasp for breath. But you can't help wondering, "What if I didn't wake up? Could I have suffocated in my sleep? How close to death was I?"

Sleep is elusive as you wonder. This happens more than once. How often do you stop breathing without waking up? Is this why you're so tired during the day? What if you fall asleep at the wheel? Is there permanent brain damage? Is that why I can't concentrate? Why I lost my job?

ADJECTIVE: Unwilling to state facts or opinions simply and directly.
As in, when your boss writes a cryptic memo directed and distributed to everyone that begins with the statement "For those of you who keep your bench and work area clean, you can stop reading now...."
WORD HISTORY: It seems fitting that Martin Luther, a man noted for the forthright expression of his ideas, may have had a hand in giving us the contemptuous term we apply to those unwilling to state facts or opinions directly.

It seems fitting that the founder of the second most autocratic sect of Christianity coins a term that divulges a fear of the consequences of what one says.


The second edition of Cunt has been published, and is available on Amazon.
An ancient title of respect for women, the word "cunt" long ago veered off this noble path. Inga Muscio traces the road from honor to expletive, giving women the motivation and tools to claim "cunt" as a positive and powerful force in their lives.


A listener of 103.5 The Fox suggested that Boobzilla be one of a long list of liberal celebrity idiots to join Sean Penn permanently as one of Hugo Chavez' useful idiots in Venezuela. I just had to know who/what Boobzilla is.
