I seem to be on a losing streak.
It seems like every home visit I make now is at a place where smokers predominate. They're watching, or have just finished watching, their loved one die of a smoking-related disease, and they're all puffing away.
The other night, there was one smoker in the house, and of course that person found me to be the person she felt most comfortable talking to. While I'm happy to have enough therapeutic presence to be that "ear" (or, who knows, the only one to tolerate her lighting up) I almost had to go to the car for my albuterol inhaler as she smoked 7 cigs in the 45 min. wait for the funeral home. My eyes resembled the red glow of the Terminator.
I'm going to buy some tobacco company stock, just so these folks can help fund my upcoming cancer treatments.
It seems only fair.
I know it's just random chance that I'm getting a bunch of these in a row, but I'm ready for a return to the mean. Soon. Real
Anyone else have a streak, good or bad going?
