Yesterday I had a VERY sick little boy. The day before, him and his little brother with their friend, got it in their heads to make their own cigs, as they call it. They took paper and mint, the fresh variety growing in said friend’s garden. Had an absolute blast almost setting the friend’s house on fire, practically sending the granny and grandpa to an early grave! So there they were, the 3 smokateers puffing on a paper and mint cig. I can just imagine what that must have looked like!! “At least it was a healthy cigarette” I was told! Me rolling my eyes coz ya know, there ain’t such a thing as a HEALTHY cigarette, smoke is smoke dude! So I think he suffered from slight smoke inhalation, which made him think twice about ever doing something that silly again. Man, that’s just not cricket!!
Anyway, T was feeling a bit under the weather yesterday, he vomited twice and had a headache from hell, me thinks it was a bit of a hangover! Now I don’t do vomiting, in any shape or form, never have never will, most probably! So everytime he called me and said he was gonna puke, I called Pete and told him T’s gonna puke! I’m running out of his room as Pete walks in to sit with him and clean up! Me winning again the title for “Mother of the year award” Phew! Hectic stuff!
Today he told me that he will NEVER EVER EVER EVER smoke anything again, ever. I think that’s a good choice, a very good choice. The thing is, when you start smoking, at some point, you HAVE to quit. That’s the problem, it’s not something one can do for the rest of your life and be healthy.
