The weather outside is delightful

So I've been having this thought every time I walk outside on the few stunning summer days we have managed to have here in the Pacific Northwest, if you stripped away all of your knowledge of the social context and where just to purely observe the outdoors I wonder if you would come to the conclusion that the people that enjoy the outdoors the most are smokers.

Every door I go out I have to walk past a dozen people smoking, and the other people that spend any amount of time outside have to also notice that the non-smokers are walking from building to building while the smokers inhabit the outdoors.  Maybe you would think that it was some sort of apartheid, a social separation to oppress the smokers.

That is my random thought for the day.

  5. I hate the smell of cigarette smoke. Luckily, I don't notice too many smokers running around here. They're everywhere at school, though.
