Tip Our Hats: Guys With Asthma

Call us crazy, but we think guys with asthma are hot. It's so cute the way they leave their house with nothing but their keys, wallet, and inhaler. Without a doubt, all three items are jammed in their front pocket and their jeans bulge out like they're smuggling some bulky contraband. If you are lucky enough to give him a hug, you can feel the metal inhaler through the denim. Whoa!

These boys are usually the bookish ones, since any kind of athletic activity is precluded by their asthmatic condition. They are usually very pale and have undefined triceps, which is totally fine by us. They also interrupt conversations frequently to take a hit off of said inhaler. And, it's always pleasant when they can breathe normally again and resume their funny story about the time they went to a Comicon and saw a fat Spiderman.

So, we tip our hats to you, asthma sufferers. In a strange way, we find your medical condition endearing.

Also, on a related note, these are the kinds of guys who usually were allergic to an entire laundry list of food items. In class, they usually have to bring their own snacks to parties because if they ate an errant peanut, they could potentially die. Heavy, right?

Let it be known that I, Amanda Mello, am NOT into asthma. Mostly because every time I have an allergy attack it feels like an asthma attack and I'd never want to date a dude who was going through that same thing. Two of us having breathing probs? Can you imagine the horrifically embarrassing and clunky sexual encounters? Ugh. No thanks.

Those asthma guys are adorable-- provided they aren't socially retarded (see "The Pick-Up Artist" on VH1 for clarification.)

I am OBSESSED with the show "The Pick-Up Artist." See?

I actually got mad when I went out on a date last week and the guy was demonstrating lower value all over the place. Mystery would've schooled his ass. I wanted to slip him a DVD of the show so he could raise his game. Sheesh.

Haha, this post is hilarious. I've actually never dated a guy with asthma, but there's always a first time, right?! Check out my blog...I gave you guys an award for your amazing blog :)

Wow! This is awesome!

Thanks for sending over some love. This totally just put a smile on my face.

Not only am I asthmatic, but I like Fall Out Boy. =]

Do you think the guys on icecreamheadaches were giving you a bit of a hard time there?

Anna said...

Hey Daniel!

Yeah, those icecreamheadache dudes were giving me a bit of a hard time, but it's ok; I can take it.

I love Fall Out Boy so much and to be in a position where I had to
A. Write a non-fangirl review of the show

and then

B. Defend my love of the band to a bunch of fans

was weird. But, as anyone who knows me can attest, I am a car crash heart deep down.

Thanks for writing in!
