I kind of like "Handy Original Snore Eliminator (and) Harmoniously Exquisite Apnea Destroyer"

OK. It doesn't meet Objective a. But you have to admit it meets objective b, c, and d. Objective e may be little though.

I can't help it. My OSA and EDS has got me so obsessed with proper treatment I have to find something to laugh about. Usually when I explain CPAP, and get that far off stare, I tell them we are "Hose Heads". That gets their attention. You have to know that "Velvet Lung" doesn't do the trick for me. It seems... I don't know ... like something you'd buy in a dirty bookstore. "Do you have any velvet lungs?" (Wink, wink, nod, nod)

D.H. I hope I have not offended you. You've given me tons of good advice since my first post and I appreciate your advice. I know the rest of the people who visit Needsleep realize that also and they could use a laugh or two also. This is a valid issue but I just have to joke around once in a while. Thank you.
