people! enough about the smoking post already
i did have a point though. my point was that the tot lot, designated for toddlers, is not a place for smoking. if any of you would care to argue otherwise, do it on your own blog.
as for me, i don't care if people smoke. i lived in france for a while, i'll have you know. (i am, for the record, an astonishingly sophisticated man.) when i came back to the states i was so hopelessly addicted to second hand smoke that i begged all of my friends to start their own two-pack-a-day habits. "please," i would exhort, "i need to you start smoking unfiltered Gauloises. if you were a true friend you would do this for me." i mean, everybody knows that smoking is glamorous and sexy and fun and is scientifically proven to make you smarter. also, it gives your skin a beautiful sheen.
it's just not something you should do in a boxed-in space explicitly reserved for 1-4 year olds, that's all. this is so painfully obvious that stevie wonder could see it. my exaggerated rage was adopted for comic effect. it may have backfired. i see that now. smoke got in my eyes.
