I’m reblogging this in response to Jim’s Thursday Inspiration Smoke gets in your eyes.
I remember the Platters version of this as well as Bryan Ferry. It is also a golden oldie I used to play many years ago.
It was not unusual for my own cigarette smoke to make my eyes water, and two colleagues n the office gave up together but would come down to inhale the smoke from existing smokers instead. Of course today public places, restaurants, offices, theatres and public transport are all non- smoking.
When I tried to give up in the 80s prior to meeting Hubby, so called friends would blow smoke in my face and tease ‘Go on, have a drag.’
I often wonder if they are still smokers, or if they are actually still around, after all, that part of my life is 32 years ago.
Hubby and I quit in 1991 and began our married life as non-smokers. Apart from one solitary puff that Christmas, I have not touched, or wanted, a cigarette since.
