I Don’t Stink

Filed under: Home — mikesdump @ 3:11 am

Last night a bunch of us from work went out for some food, beer and
pool at a local pub. It was a great time. My pool playing skill level
reached new heights this year as a result I made it to the second round
(when I say “skill level” I really mean luck since this was the first
time I ever played 9 ball).

The most entertaining moment for me was when I left to go home. I sat
down in the van after fighting through the thick cloud of smoke just
outside the doors. There must have been twenty smokers huddled around
the door puffing the night away. When I sat in the van I realized, I
don’t stink. Well, to clarify I didn’t smell like an ashtray.

It was good to leave a pub and not have all fourteen layers of clothing
I’m wearing this time of year reek like smoke. In the olds days I’d
strip off the fourteen layers of clothing, tossed them into the
fireplace and lay down in bed. After laying down it would take a second
before I noticed and I would think; is it going to be easier to shave
my head bald and over or get up and have a shower. Lather rinse repeat,
lather rinse repeat, lather rinse repeat� Before the smell of cigarette
smoke was everywhere, there was no escaping it

When I leave a pub nowadays I’ll only smell like what I ate and drank.
On the extra special occasions a third smell is possible which is what
I ate and drank combined coming back up.



  1. Congrats on this, man. Giving up smoking is a very tough thing to do and I admire your willpower immensely.

  2. Hey thanks Justice. I was refering to second hand smoke though (not that I said it in the post).

    When I was much younger I did smoke for about a year but I found it pretty easy to give it up because Sandy said so 🙂
