More Hilarity For You At The Expense Of 'You Know Who!'

Whilst we were putting the world to rights in one of our marathon phone calls earlier, Mum told me about her inhaler ciggie thingy that she has on prescription from the NHS, would you believe. She originally got it to 'stop smoking' but instead she's used it on long plane journeys and the fact she can't 'last 5 hours at work without a puff' and goes into the toilet for a 'quick drag' lol. She originally told the woman at the Chemist that she 'only smokes 6 a day' but she told ME she 'has those before I leave for work.' Haha! Yesterday she was distraught to discover that her fake puffer was nowhere to be seen. How would she cope? By the time she'd got back home she proceeded to turn the whole house upside down as she 'cannot live without my puffer at work.' She routed through the bin, she looked in 'strange and stupid places,' everywhere but nope, she couldn't find it. So she contacted the Chemist, who prescribe such things. Now, normally she wouldn't be able to get this puffer on a repeat prescription but, after much begging, she managed to, along with the little refills that go with it. Phew! Upon looking again in her work's bag (a rucksack with millions of pockets) after she'd collected her new stash she thought, 'Erm, what's this protruding from one of the pockets?' Yes, you guessed it, her ORIGINAL puffer! She told me that she has 'no idea' why she didn't find it the first time round but now she has two, so we can all sleep easy at night knowing this fact. Haha!

The more pockets the more loss potential. It is just too bad she did not go ahead and quit smoking. You can save so much money as well as your health. Or rather she can. It is funny how things can be right in plain sight and then disappear only to resurface when once replaced.

I've given up trying to get Mum to give up smoking. Obviously, she can't smoke on the premises at work but she more than makes up for that at home. I've noticed she doesn't inhale though and has been known to blow smoke right in my face when I've been there. I tell her off constantly but it makes no difference. At least her grandson is like me..he has tried to smoke but doesn't like it, thank goodness.
