One of the other
things we Non-Smokers have to get used to is a hen-like
attitude to just about everything. It's a short
attention span, pecking around, and then completely
forgetting what we were doing. Very alarming, and I
don't really know how we Non-Smokers get anything useful
done, but maybe we're just very good at looking busy and
waiting to go to heaven and stuff.
And there's a rampage
of villi in the part of us that does the actual breathing.
They are little retired Roman Legionnaires who farm the
mucus membrane and they are objecting to the disappearance
of their tobacco allowance. Very understandable, I feel it
too, but I don't go down there into their world and start
waving banners and standing on their street corners. I wish
I'd paid more attention in Latin. "Venii Vicii Go Awaii," is
Dutch to them.
