I heard the strangest thing the other day from one of my friends, about how she doesn’t like a guy but she likes to look at him smoke. It made me feel better when she admitted that it sounded weird to hear though I still can’t get past that oddness. Said friend has never been a fan of smokers, and the guy that’s she’s been after, she likes because he isn’t into all of that. So why flip the script all of a sudden? She seemed like she’d be willing to look past the smoking for the other guy. It seemed to be his only flaw. But, should people be willing to look past flaws just because they want something? I’m all for compromise but really, isn’t there only so much you can look past. There are people like her, and then there are the kind of people that can’t look past flaws; won’t, even. And so they change the people they choose to associate with. What kind of person are you? The one who copes, the one who fixes, or neither? I don’t know which I am, though I do know that smoking can never be cool by me. I think my secondhand-smoke clothes can vouch for me on that one.
