a light at the end of the bronchial tube

Maybe my coughing will come to an end soon. I went to the doctor today and found out I have a lung infection and may have had it for a while. Every winter I get this congestion and cough that just goes on for weeks. So far this winter, I've had it twice. It was time to call in the professionals. Evidently, my lungs may have been damaged from breathing poultry dust years ago. (I worked at an experimental poultry farm 26 years ago) Anyway, these chronic bouts of coughing fits have been caused by a low grade infection that's been around awhile. I won't try to use all the jargon the doc used. So I'm on antibiotics, two kinds of inhalers and an allergy medicine. I should be a new man soon. Dorothy will be glad, I think she's been wanting a new man. (just kidding)

See, now you have an excuse for gaining those post retirement pounds - you've been sick. Shall I pencil you in to run a marathon with me once you are healthy?

Lucy: Thanks
Dawn: Yes, pencil me in. Your pencil does have an eraser doesn't it?
