The other night I was watching The Departed (2006) around 3am, wheezing and feeling miserable, when I realized my asthma can be personified by “Marky” Mark Wahlberg’s character, Dignam.
Hey Asthma, think I’ll make it to work tomorrow?
…get out and socialize with friends?
…be able to take a walk with the kids?
…make it over to Rally’s before their Two Big Bufords for $5 deal goes away?
…see the new Mad Max movie in the theater?
…go see my friends in the Wizard of Oz play?
…hang out with my cousin when she passes through on her coast-to-coast road trip?
…go to Lebowski Fest this year?
I’m not even sure why I ask anymore. The answer is always the same.
