Fiendish












Although I fully understand that few things are less welcome than the gloating of a recovered addict, I felt particularly smug last night at the Record Bar. I watched a constant stream of pathetic losers smokers trudge outside to indulge their filthy habit. Not only were they forced to shiver in the bitter cold, they risked missing another stupendous solo from the town's second-best saxophonist. The indoor smoking ban has improved the quality of my life immeasurably.

    And when the weather is warmer and you're inside with the smell of grease, feces in the sanitation facilities and the stench of spilled stout on the floor, step outside and we who indulge will happily blow our smoke your way. I'm trying to quit, pal. Thanks for alluding to me as a pathetic loser even if you crossed it out. The implication was clear. And by the way, I never leave when the music is interesting. People who hang out in bars are the pathetic losers. I ought to know cause I did it for 30 years on an almost nightly basis. I'm a born again homebody not out of choice but because I am short of funds to attend special occasions I really want to be at. Cheers and bottoms up!

    I am so pleased by your change in choices, BGO. I want you around as long as possible. Us ex-smokers are an obnoxious bunch. It might help you to know, however, that I haven't craved a cigarette in years.

    going out to smoke in the freezing cold was about 50% of the reason I quit. the other 50% was my kid's upcoming birth.I never saved any money and got fat(ter) but I don't miss standing out in the cold for sure

    as someone who loves live music but is deathly allergic to cigarette smoke i appreciated the same thing when i went to the record bar a couple of weeks ago to see the sex police. its wonderful to not nearly die going to a concert.

    I don't smoke. Haven't in 15 years.

    I despise ex-smokers that gloat about this shit. I know you threw out the disclaimer, but it really doesn't change my opinion.

    I understand, KCLL. I'm not proud of it. Just telling the truth.


    I've spent days trying to pick up on the "Dexter" reference, LL. I don't get it.
