It’s that time of year, and I used to be one of them, the time when all of the smokers are sitting in their cars getting their cigarette fix while their kid is on the field playing baseball. Not that it is any secret that smoking around the fields is frowned upon (unless you’re the guy in my last post with the cigar…clueless). Anyway smoking cigarettes around young athletes is pretty rare, but smoking in your car with the window cracked happens a lot. Of course, you miss a lot of the game and that is sad. So I am so glad I can Bloog (vape) off to the side and no one even really notices, because the vapor just evaporates…love it. I never miss a play and I am not banished to the parking lot anymore…I have to convert a few of my still smoking friends…may even try getting on the Bloog affiliate program so I make some bucks at this…anyway, it’s good to not be in the parking lot when your son makes a big play. PEACE!
I generally don’t butt (forgive the pun) into people’s lives too much, unless I really care about them. So I was taking my son to his baseball team’s Winter workout at their training facility and as I am pulling up I see one of the coaches having a smoke outside in the parking lot. So I say to my son, is that Vic smoking? My son responds, didn’t you know? And I’m like yeah, but I have never seen him smoking out in front when you kids arrive….sort of sends a bad message (not that I have been an angel)…Wow talk about the pot calling the kettle black right? Anyway, I get out of the car and I start talking to Vic, he’s and older guy and I tell him how I am trying to quit and using these electronic cigarettes. And he’s like do they really work. So I tell him yes they do and how they work. He tells me it’s his only vice, but that the doctor was surprised that he was up to almost two packs a day…yikes, he’s worse than me. Anyway I promised to get him a starter kit like mine to try and I’ll give it to him and see how he does. I felt bad, but the guy is so good to my son, I’d hate to see him get cancer…when I know there is something better…I’ll try not to be so preachy next time. Funny, I always heard that ex-smokers are the least tolerant of smokers…boy I guess they are right…but hoping I helped Vic…crossing fingers. Peace!
