In response to Daily Post’s writing post “Breath“.
She took a deep breath in, and slowly breathed out. She had done this several times before she asked me again, “What did you do?” I replied, “I just lost that $300 watch you bought me.” She stared at me, taking another few deep breaths. I asked her what she was doing. She said, “I’m practicing a new way of relaxation…” After a long pause, she realized what I was trying to do. “Don’t change the subject!” she yelled, taking a few more of those annoying breaths. This time, it was my turn to stare at her. She sat down. No words or breaths. She suddenly got up with my ‘lost’ watch in her hand. “Oops,” I said, “That just goes to show that your breathing didn’t solve anything. Next time sit down.”
