My life in tweets, a series



  1. Joe says:

    My wife tells me I breathe to loud too except she calls it snoring. I’m not selfconcious about it at all because when I do it I am unconscious!

  2. Bill Templeman says:

    Daughters have a special power over fathers in terms of feedback. Old guys are powerless in the face of this assertiveness. We are Yesterday’s Men. My daughters regularly give me feedback on my cooking, grooming and clothing sense. I celebrate their independence of mind, but I wish it wasn’t always about me! I prefer listening to feedback when it is directed toward others…not all of Life’s Gifts are easy to receive. 🙂

  3. davie says:

    Two skips in a tight game, half done.
    One skip says to the other: I really like the smoothness of your delivery, all in one motion. When you deliver a rock, do you breath in? or out?

    Mischief, to get an edge!

  4. Roger says:

    As a father of a 21 year old I am familiar with this problem. It’s called “you’relisteningtooclosely” – also related to “i’mnotasdumbasyouthink”. There is no cure. Good Luck

  5. Matt says:

    Have a dinner heavy on the garlic and onions, then have a long, loud exhale in her general direction.

    She’ll never mention it again.


  6. sezme says:

    Yeah, pipe down. I can hear your breathing from here.

  7. David_M says:

    Being aware of your breathing is an important exercise when working towards a stress free state.
    Obviously your daughter is generously providing you with the state and the cure.
    She’s talented.

  8. e.a.f. says:

    oh get over it, its the revenge of the grandparents. just think of what you did to your parents. Parenthood is revenge because you were once a kid also on the other hand is your will up to date.

  9. davidray says:

    next time play her this clip. thank Monte Python. All these years later and it still breaks me up 🙂


  10. Marc-André Chiasson says:

    When you get to be a certain age, children should be pleased just for the fact that you’re still breathing…whether loud or inconspicuously. You may wish to point that out to her.

  11. debs says:

    comeon …..someone needs to don a darthvader mask to make it even more obnoxious.

  12. davie says:

    Hah! Next step is that she will tell you to look both ways before crossing the street.

  13. socks clinton says:

    Just say to her “If I don’t breathe I’ll die”.
