Feel The Burn

I'm not what one would consider a smoker. Aside from the occasional social cigarette every few weeks (or months), I don't smoke at all. In fact, I've never even bought my own pack.

Well, today as I was driving around with Madison (who does smoke), I bummed a cigarette from her. Our mission had been to buy her a hookah, so I was just in a tobacco-y mood. However, as we were cruising down the highway, listening to "Hey Soul Sister" (it's so generic but so, so catchy), with the windows down, it began to rain. These huge water drops were splashing onto me, so I throw out my cigarette & roll up the window.

Only of course, it's not that simple. As I lean back against my seat, I feel this piercing burn. Confused & frightened, I leaned forward to see the cigarette fall from it's comfortable position against my back & into the seat, exactly when my butt would be once I sit down. Luckily, I was able to pick it up & correctly throw it out the window. However, I did suffer a minor rash & burned a small hole in my shirt.

And that's why you shouldn't smoke.

Oh! Imma share a story with you:

One summer my cousin and I were taking his friend sightseeing. In the car, I was sitting in the back, and we had all the windows down.

The two of them light a couple cigs and were ashing them out the window when it got back in the car and WENT UP MY NOSE!!!!

Muthafukkin OW!

They apologized and bought me lunch.

You win. Hands down.

What did you eat?

The Housewife said...

Um.. prolly a sandwich. This was years ago - I was still in college.

I'm disappointed that you don't remember exactly.

But it's ok because I'm used to being disappointed.

*sad trombone*

Aww, I didn't mean to disappoint.

I had a buffalo burger with Irish cheddar, red pepper aioli with balsamic onions and bacon.
