When Irish Lungs Are Stinging

Prior to the smoking ban, which first happened in Ireland on this date and subsequently travelled everywhere, the world was paradise. While non-smokers had to suffer the deadly consequences of second hand carcinogens, they did so in a convivial atmosphere.

Then the ban was introduced and suddenly, every few minutes, the ‘cool’ people would leave to go outside and light up, form meaningful relationships and laugh uproariously. While we dweebs are left sitting inside, bored, depressed and catarrh free. I miss the old days.
