Free advice for the other elephant in this Spiriva ad
Here's something else that can feel like having an elephant on your chest- carrying around an extra hundred pounds or so.
Maybe what this woman needs is a more rigorous line of work. Seems her current job involves walking sloooowwlly around an office carrying a clipboard, nodding and waving at her fellow minions, and daydreaming about her next trip to the Wendy's drive thru during sales meetings (gee, it would be awful if her tongue swelled during lunch, preventing her from getting that new fish sandwich down!) For a change of pace, she occasionally hauls her fat butt outside to sit in the sun with a magazine. That's about it.
I'm sure Spiriva is great for her OCD or OLD or FAT or whatever the hell this latest miracle pill is supposed to cure-- or rather, supposed to lessen the symptoms of-- or rather, replace the symptoms of with another set of symptoms. I just wonder why, if this drug opens this woman's airwaves for 24 whole hours, she doesn't use that period of free breathing to better effect. Like, to take a long walk at speeds above 1 MPH. Or visit a gym. Or revisit her Blame Shortness Of Breath On Some Disease Other Than Morbid Obesity plan. Because from this ad, I don't even get WHY this woman wants to breathe easier. I don't see anything going on in her life that requires a whole lot of oxygen.
