Merry Smokin' Christmas!

As we were leaving Costco, we had to pass a truck full of freshly cut Christmas trees.

We also had to pass some people smoking ...

Megan: Ew, that SMELL.

Me: You mean the smoke?

Megan: YES.

Me: I know. Pretty gross, huh?

Megan: YES. Mom, 2 questions.

Me: Okay.

Megan: 1. Why don't we get a real Christmas tree?

Me: Well, we have a really nice fake one that's paid for. We would have to pay for a new one each year. What's the 2nd question?

Megan: Huh?

Me: You said, 'Mom, 2 questions'. Was it about smoking, perhaps? Because that is what we were talking about when you said that you had 2 questions.

Megan: Right. 2. Why do people smoke?

Me: It's just a bad habit that's hard to break.

Megan: I like the smell of real Christmas trees.

Me: Me too.

Okay, so as I was on the web trying to find images of "smoking" or "Christmas trees", I stumbled upon a website specializing in non-smoking Christmas ornaments!! Seriously?! Why would anyone even want these on their tree??? Even if they DID finally kick the habit ... why must the Christmas tree suffer, people? It ain't right. That's all I'm sayin'.
