New Year's Resolution (late): Start smoking at 55
I've always kind of wanted to smoke, but I grew up in the upper middle class and it was frowned on. Three days ago my husband of 23 years admitted he had a smoking fetish and was a light closet smoker. At first I was just shocked. It's horrible for your health, right?
But I'm 55. What are the odds it will kill me before something else will -- or I get Alzheimer's (which both parents had)? In fact, smoking makes Alzheimer's less likely. Anyway, the more I think about it the more excited I get -- and it will blow my husband's mind.
So my resolution is to start smoking some full-flavor cigarette and continue until I'm smoking at least 5 a day. If I don't like them then, I can quit.
I'm really excited by this.
