My brother has a eustachian tube problem and has to use an Otovent which is a balloon that he blows up with one nostril. Weird, huh? This is an actual thing a doctor prescribed and not one of his inventions like his flashing-light goggles or other gizmos. He's the only person I know who uses a joystick to turn on his cruise control.

I can't decide if this is for real or a joke. If it is for real, our boys would think your brother was really cool. If it is a joke, they would still think he's really cool.

i think he's even cooler-er now.

i'd love to be a fly on the wall when there's a bunch of "kims" together...or by now do i qualify for the next family reunion? guess i better practice my dance/dance revolution moves.

ps)i can't find my take-out. did you take my leftovers home last night? when you volunteered to "take" them for me i didn't think you meant "TAKE" them.... thanks again for putting up with me last night.

Yes Karmen, this one's for real. I guess they prescribe it for "glue ear". He did make his own stethoscope when he had atrial fibrillation. He has a doctorate in physics and talks "above our heads" a lot of the time, but likes to have fun.

Melanie, you're welcome to any reunions, but remember, you have to interrupt to get a word in edgewise!

Kim, your brother might appreciate this more modern, less complicated, and gentler device called the earpopper.

My doctor just prescribed it to me.

He can check it out at
