Earlier this week, I was challenged by a fellow Fibro to compare our Cystic Adventures. The below is our result. Ever think the CG blog is too girly?! I didn't think so! But you be the judge. Read on . . .
CF BLOG THROWDOWN: BOYS VERSUS GIRLS
Are you ready for the CF Rumble in the Jungle?
In the pink corner, we have CysticGal, sensitive and kind, who adores pictures of bunnies and anything pink. She is loving, caring and the perfect model of CF womanhood – A poet of the highest order. And, fan of fuzzy animals and all things “chic.”
In the blue corner: me. I don’t take showers in the hospital; I smell of man musk most days. Raw, nasty and gross and 110 percent CF man. Defective chromosome and mucus-filled lungs ready to roll in my “Smokey and the Bandit” black Trans-Am.
Bring it on, "UnKnownCystic." Respect for showing up.
TEN QUESTIONS: Boys vs. Girls
CysticGal: I'd prefer you call it "yucky." I spit the yucky in a pretty blue cup.
2. Things you'd like to say to your nimrod RT:
3 What do you think about when you're at the gym:
CysticGal: That's right, I'm naturally thin and walk this slow on the treadmill. Suck it. And stop staring at me.
5. What is your biggest worry about your body?
CysticGal: That others will be jealous of my supermodel thin bod. Poor ladies!
6. What is your most attractive CF-related quality?
CysticGal: My raspy voice gives me that Demi-Moore-esque quality... or is it that I'm sleeping with Ashton Kusher?
CysticGal: Clearly, Angelina Jolie. Without all the adulterous and bizarro family stuff. Just the kids and the famous actress and Brad-Pitt-as-husband parts. Oh yeah, and she's dead sexy- like me. I'm sure if you asked Angelina Jolie who she would be if she had CF, she'd say, "Cystic Gal."
UnknownCystic: That's funny, CysticGal, because I'd be Brad Pitt. Actually, I don't like Angelina's tattoos. I'd be Brad Pitt but with my wonderful wife and daughter. Sorry, love is love and hard to find.
CysticGal: Awwww, that's sweet. And lame! Just kidding.
10. What career would you have if you didn't have CF?
