More random observations

May 1, 2007

We have several folks at my workplace who smoke, and they have funny key phrases for their smoke breaks, like, “I’m going outside to feed the squirrels.” (As if the squirrels really enjoy ashes for breakfast.)

Today, we heard, “I’m going outside to get some fresh air.”

Am I the only one who thinks that’s funny?

Irony cracks me up.



  1. I love it when smokers complain about the cold they just can’t seem to shake. In my book, inhaling large amounts of noxious gas several times a day nullifies your right to whine about the nasty cough that you can’t get rid of.

  2. Diesel ~ “nullifies” is such a good word. I’m trying to think of a similar analogy, but I’m all out of funny. Hopefully you know what I mean! Cheers! (And best of luck with the new caption contest!) 😉

  3. Maybe they meant, I’m going outside to put an end to the fresh air? Actually the one that gets me is smokng on a very hot day – like inhaling heated air is going to help.
