Poor Squirt. The doc put him on a nebulizer to treat a respiratory infection, so he gets to wear this mask three times a day.
Of course, the first thing I thought of was Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet. I tried to get him to say “I can hear your freakin’ radio you silly guy!” but he wasn’t much interested. Though I do wish I had my camera handy when he was wearing it and simultaneously having a gunfight with his brother.
I keep telling him “Take another hit, Frankie!” Fortunately the Wife hasn’t seen Blue Velvet and has no idea what I’m talking about.
