Surprised By My Nephew
Last weekend my anti-smoking brother wanted me to go with him to watch his son …my nephew Chris, play football for his school. Chris. Since he was a young boy was totally sports oriented, clean-cut, smart kid..always straight A’s in school, involved in all activities and admired by all. In his teens he got into bodybuilding, weight lifting, etc. and became a hunky jock, big, strong, tall, athletic, health conscious and handsome.
He had worked and studied hard and won sport scholarships to quite a few colleges while keeping up his grades, his sports and lifestyle, but was told by my brother he was stressing a lot lately trying to juggle all…
Anyway…watched the game, which he was the star of his team..fast, quick thinking, quick moving…a real pro. After the game my brother dropped Chris and I at his home, as he had to do some errands.
We sat in the living room, started having a few beers and began chatting… I lit up one of red 100s and mentioned to Chris that his Dad told me that you were stressing lately…and he nodded his head…while watching me inhale hard and deep. At some point during our conversation and another beer and me another red 100…he said.. “hey Uncle Josh…can I try one of your reds?”…I looked at him with 4 eyes in disbelief and said “WHAT!...get outta here” you’re not made to be a smoker”…and he said… “please..just wanna try one and see what it tastes and feels like to hold one….seems to relax you and everyone else who smokes….even some of my team players smoke”
I kinda shook my head and tried to disuade him…but he asked me again twice again..”c’mon Uncle Josh..gimme one..let me just try it….I probably won’t like it anyway”… and pulled out my pack, slid out a red, handed it to him and he put it in between his lips…mimicking me…actually made a perfect “dangle” without knowing it. I held out my lighter and lit him up as he just sucked gently and got a bit of smoke in his mouth...
ending to come shortly…had to jump off!
