(With apologies to Hercu) it is a grey and rainy day here in London. In the past that would have really upset me as it would have made the logistics of going out for my regular cigarette break that much more difficult. I would not be able to saunter out of my room as if I was popping to get a cuppa or go for a meeting - instead I would have to get an umbrella and make it obvious where I was going. Would then need to go and find a sneaky sheltered spot somewhere so that I didn't get wet while I had a smoke. Usually there would be a bunch of other smokers there and it would be damp, smelly and squalid. Then I would probably have two cigarettes rather than one on the basis that it saved me going through the whole process as often. Finally I would come back to my office as covertly as I could but in reality damp, smelly and generally feeling guilty and a bit sordid. Now I really don't care that much if it is raining while I am at work!!
