Well of course I'd ask, my point is that asking is not mandatory. And I thank you Em for noticing I am a courteous smoker, my vice should not annoy anyone. Believe me folks, all you drinkers out there, well drinking is as repugnant to me as smoking is to you; the smell, the behavior...please. But thanks Em. Which would you prefer? organic menthol, or Indonesian? I don't smoke domestic, too many additives, and way to low of a nicotine content.
Here's a question to get back on track...what about e-cigs folks? Any smoke you think you see is really steam...but try and convince a security guard at Wa. Sq.; talk about folks who have no sense of humor... But what about it folks...nicotine injection for us drug dependent folks...insert wink wink, nudge nudge here...no smoke for those of you happy to breathe all that good clean nitrogen/oxygen+.
