Light My Fire
They say there are a lot of dangers in smoking, you know the things I’m talking about. We see commercials everywhere and we all know how bad it is for us. I smoke on occasion, usually around other smokers or in a social situation.
What they don’t tell you in those commercials is about how unsafe those little fire sticks are. They don’t tell you how you could potentially set yourself on fire :wow:
I was once walking down the street with a friend when I saw my sleave was on fire. I started freaking out and waving my hand around (with the cigarette still in my hand) and we got a good laugh.Ãƒâ€š Nobody, but my sleeve, was harmed.
Another time, with same friend, we were driving to Woodstock 99 when I tossed my cig out my window. Next thing I noticed I smelled smoke and asked my friend if she smelled it as well. She did and then I saw smoke coming up under my car seat and my friend looked back to see my coat on fire. We flew over to the side of the road and jumped out in panic. I still have that coat with the burn mark :dunno:
In the car with Gemini the other day it was raining really hard and again I tossed my cigarette out the window. Generally I worry about making sure it gets out because I know what happens when it slips back inside but it was raining so hard that I just tossed it quickly and rolled up the window.
As I am sitting there I realize my butt is burning and I wonder if the cigarette made it out the window this time. I pull over to the side of the road in a panic :willynilly: and Gemini searches in a frantic for the cigarette burning my ass. She finds it and throws it out the window.
Talk about cigarettes being hazardous to your health :duh:
