Yesterday we had our annual street BBQ. In the afternoon we all went out on a boat trip on the canals and in the evening we all got together for a barbecue. Lots of beer and no smokes for Emmy or me
Isn't it just so nice being a non-smoker at any social event? In years gone by there would have been ashtrays on every table and not one bit of consideration for non smokers or kids
Out of about 40 adults, there were only 3 that smoked. One was of the "don't give a ****" types and smoked wherever he wanted to, regardless of who was around him....including kids. I kindly asked him to smoke away from the kids, to which I got a smart **** answer. Even so, he did move away a little.
The other 2 smokers were much more considerate.
I felt really sorry for them. They were huddled together outside of the party tent, in the cold like some kind of social outcasts....trying their best to pretend that they were enjoying their cigarette and being social, when deep down they wish they didn't smoke. I hope they will see the light and quit.
I am so very glad we don't smoke anymore, and life is just so great without the damn things.
Hope you are all good
Have a great day
