Breathing

11 02 2009

Today we went out to lunch to celebrate Granny’s birthday. Also joining was the always-enjoyable Anast family, and I sat at the end of the table with Joe (age 7) and Rysha (age 5). Those two kids make for rather entertaining lunch conversation.

One part of our discussion was so funny I told Joe I was going to blog about it later. Somehow, he got on the topic of whether it’s easier to breathe through your nose, your mouth, or a combination of the two. Here’s a quick snippet of that dialogue.

Joe: One time, I breathed only through my nose for, like, three hours.

Me: Really?

Joe: Yeah. It was awful!

(gut laugh), that’s hilarious! As I read, I tried to do all three. I’ve actually had the dentist tell me it’s pretty important to breathe through your nose. Otherwise your gums get red and irritated. You were probably dying to know that.

Trust me, as one who knows; not being able to breathe through your nose is awful!!!

Corrie – Having irritated gums is just one of many complications of a mouth breather.

My daughter likes to get out my stethoscope and give me a check-up. She tells me to “take a deep breath and fill your airways for me please”.
