to desire the replica

posted on: October 20th, 2008

I have just returned to my office after having a smoke. The weather is foul; cold and windy and I’m wearing a sweater so thin that my nipples can cut glass when I get back in. The extremely luxurious smoking accommodation here consists of standing amid the pee stains while huddling under the dryer vent which is conveniently located next to the enormous and rather aromatic dumpster in the back alley. It’s very glamorous. The upside is of course that the dryer vent keeps my clothes smelling “freshly laundered” regardless of my alley activities. When I quit I will be one of the few people who will say that I smelled better as a smoker.

I can’t seem to focus on much today but in an effort to ensure that I won’t inadvertently “Dooce” myself, I will not say that I am ducking out for a cigarette every 15 minutes. However, shivering under a dryer vent that produces an ungodly amount of lint while wearing a black sweater seems to state otherwise.

Note to self; leave grey lint coloured sweater in office for future use.

(PS- For all of you Yanks out there–Yes, colour is supposed to be spelt with a “u” so thank you and shut up.)
