Taking a breather

.
I could have used a few deep breaths from those "medical oxygen" cylinders in the cart at Hadassah hospital yesterday. We were having another very unhealthy dust storm.

Instead I laughed at the scene of the guys chatting because it brought to mind the idiom to take a breather (meaning to take a short break from one's activities in order to relax).

Well spotted. That looks like the sort of mobility scooter that my dad uses to get around (without the cargo area).

I take many "breathers" throughout the day!

Very droll, Dina, you made me laugh!

Dina, you are funny! I hope you're getting some relief from the dust. That's a tough one.

I like an hyperoxygenated bench!

Great word play, Dina!

Funny. Glad you said what those tubes were on that cart thing that looks like a scooter a disabled person would ride (or is it drive).

I could use a breather these days. I'm fighting a cold and totally exhausted!
