I have a theory…. The world would be a much better place if everybody smoked and drank together..
This is a finding that cuts across age, race and location… I have found it true – based on anecdotal evidence mind you. I have not quite acquired the cross gender data yet… but I suspect it still holds true….
The proof? The way people’s eyes light up when they share a smoke…You can almost feel the electricity of bonding as they exhale in unison.. The smoke from their nostrils blending into an upward swirl… especially if it is a shared stick… Or more.. The sense of fully belonging when beer bottles lose their contents… Men are never more equal than before the bottle… Stories of hurt, of pain overcome and of success unlimited are swapped with reckless abandon under the inebriation the lager induces…. I suspect people would trust their smoke buddies more than their priest..and given the news continuously breaking, I wouldn’t begrudge them the lager…
I still don’t smoke or drink.. yet.. Maybe when I feel the world needs saving in my own little way… I’ll start 🙂
