SMOKE SIGNALS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

The Clean Air Act went up in smoke at 7th and Montana this morning, thanks to Barista David who lit up a Stogie in the parking lot behind Our Favorite Starbucks. "Yikes," I said, "Are you smoking?" "Yes," he replied, "It helps me deal with all the Crazy Characters around here!" I quickly put my cell phone away. "Crazies?!?," I asked, "What exactly do you mean?" "Oh, not you," he said, "I mean all the other Crazies." "I can imagine," I replied, "Still, that's no reason to light up a Cigar!" "It's not a Cigar," he corrected, "It's a Cigarillo!" Right ... and I guess smoking isn't a Dangerous Habit, it's a Peccadillo ...!

If he is lucky, only his tongue will fall out since you are not supposed to inhale cigars, or the little make believe thingamaroos.

I used to smoke, and I can honestly say that it did nothing to ward off the Crazies. They are immune to smoke.

He looks like he fits right in with them, lol. Bless his heart, can you imagine his day-to-day dealing with them!

Gotta keep the crazies at bay!

If everyone lit up to deal with the crazies...dang, we'd be up in smoke!

I've heard some men find women smoking Cigarillos to be sexy. YUCK. I must admit to liking the smell of an apple scented(some sort of ginger spice as well)tobacco product my neighbor used, but it should be noted that he died of lung cancer. ~Mary

I've heard smoking turns you into a crazy.

Crazy is not quitting till it's too late and you end up with something like Emphysema. (Hugs)Indigo
