Writer's Block: Smoked Out

Beer and cigarettes once went together like bread and butter, but now smoking in bars is banned in many cities. When you see smokers standing outside bars in the cold and rain, what is your first reaction? Walk on by, join them, or scorn them?



I'm not a smoker. I was happy when smoking in public places was banned. Waffle House is just so much better without all the smoke.
 
However, when I see smokers standing outside in the rain and cold, I don't treat them any differently than anyone else standing outside in the cold and rain.

I used to have the tendency to ignore people I passed, but I'm trying to change.
 
I 'm trying to replace indifference with this mindset...

Always  be the first to say hello.

We don't have any Waffle Houses up here that I know of so now when I see them on my drive to your house or elsewhere, it makes me feel happy. I guess I have good memories associated with them from our days of being southern belles.

Well now we can go there and be smoke free when you visit.

We have a whole list of things to do now when I come to visit...Jamba Juice, Waffle House, Little Women, Pride and Prejudice. It seems like there may have been more. Do you remember what's on the agenda?
