she (while obviously uncomfortable with somebody smoking around her): uh! why do people smoke?
me (on phone with her): 'coz people think they look cool when they smoke

me: people start smoking when they are young, by the time they realize its actually not that cool, they can't let go of it!
me thinking (wow! one of those rare days when she agrees easily!) :D
