2 chainsmokin’ waitresses

July & I have decided to QUIT SMOKING. I am not yet sure this was a good decision, but we are marching forth all the same. The last 2 days were a little tricky as the two of us, waitied on tables, cooked meals, and took long breaks on a big ol’ porch withOUT our best little friends, the cigarettes. Yesterday we were a little on edge, so we sucked on straws July cut in 1/2, and she wrote some creative song lyrics about those goddamn cigarettes. Something along the lines of, “I want to suck you, I want to hold you in my hand…”

But every moment we get close to breaking down and sneaking outside for a cigarette, a customer then walks in who reminds us of why we are quitting. There was a lady who was probably in her 70’s (or maybe only 40’s since she was a hardcore smoker) but she had what July calls the Turtle Butt Lips. That’s where you get these horrible wrinkles around your mouth that resemble a Turtle Butt. We got another table of folks who couldn’t even complete their whole meal without twice stepping out for c-i-g-a-r-e-t-t-e-s, and July and I are tired of having our lives controlled by cigarettes. Although I do miss those mornings where I typed away, with the screen doors open, a cup of coffee spiked with Irish Cream, and an Old Gold Cigarette burning in the ash tray.

July & I have set up a double date, (yep we are bringing in two guys from outside county lines), for a trip to the tavern in Monument next week. Somewhere she has always liked to go, cuz you can smoke in it! It’s the 2nd nearest bar to my house, and it’s 35 miles away in another county, that being Grant County. We might just break down and do a little cigarette smoking that night, but maybe just maybe we’ll make it outta their drunk without cigarettes in our hands, yeah I doubt it too!

    Stick it out! Nothing tastes better than peach pie made by someone who knows what it tastes like, as opposed to someone who knows what it tastes like with a hint of nicotine.

    And who wants to kiss a turtle’s butt!? (Other than kinky turtles that is.)
