Picture the scene, its Friday night dinner at my house, the in-laws are over (b”h) and we’re tucking into yet another one of my fabulous meals. My husband says “nice bit of squirrel” and everyone chuckles as that line becomes less and less funny each week.
And then suddenly, in between courses, my son pulls out a vaping device and starts vaping at the table – and to my horror, I responded “WHAT ON EARTH DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING YOUNG MAN???”
“Please Mum,” he protests, “Its cool.”
Cool? You are not cool my boy (even though I am your mother). As long as you 27 and still living with your parents, you are not cool. In fact, you are cramping our style.
So what is this vaping device anyway?
This is supposedly an alternative to smoking. But my son doesn’t smoke, shmerril! It is a way to blow a lot of smoke and yes, I’ll admit, the fruity flavours are somewhat intoxicating.
Its the craze of electronic cigarettes which are supposedly ‘healthier’ than smoking – like smoking was ever healthy….
In my opinion, it is a load of hot air.
Vaping schmaping, I think you look more like a TV character who is angry:
And I’m always hearing stories about fires this and fires that. And plus, we don’t really know the health risks with vaping – sure, they say the second hand smoke doesn’t cause any harm, but don’t forget we thought smoking had no health risks for years and 40, 50 years ago everyone was doing it!
Oh my boychick, can’t you just go back to being vegan for a week, undertaking a rigorous juice cleanse, like you did the last time you wanted attention???
What next? He’ll be smoking cannabis because its healthy?? This isn’t California!!!
