” …. and those things can kill ya.”

~ my fathers voice still echoes.

I agree: smoking displays and conveys poor self confidence or bending to peer pressure.

That’s what it was for me: being part of the gang:

a measurement of self-worth by those she spends time with or time on.

COME ONNNN…. you say

Its not like you wake up one moment and say:

“I think I’ll take up smoking today”

~ said I to myself NEVER

So don’t even get started. It’s not cool or hip or sweet or nothing.

A writer, a blogger, a seeker, a finder; discovering nuances that are unique to those born between 1960 and 1965 .... I write about what appeals to Yuppies who are 50 plus and wanting to be the best of anything and everything! I provide insights and build camaraderie among YUPPIES of the 1980s, an impactful demographic born in the 60s, went into Junior High | Middle School in the mid 70s and graduated from High School 1979, followed by the roller coasters in the 1980s. Regardless of location, religion, gender identity, age, culture, beliefs, education or economic standing: EVERYONE is famous in their own world:: having the starring role. An expression, a reflection or opinion using the positive vibe that attracts ALL the movers & shakers of their WORLD.
