Note To Self....

When one knows that one's smoke detector has been pulled from the wall, and is sitting on the window ledge, one should remember, whilst sitting at the computer desk directly below the window, not to smoke near the aforementioned window.

Or at least, one should remember not to blow smoke directly at the smoke detector.

Cripes those suckers are loud!

No, it was right in front of me and I got it shut off at like beep three. I was gonna tell her I was testing it, anyway.


It works.

Gets the blood flowing to hear one of those, huh?

One should maybe also take it as a reminder to get said detector back where it is meant to be. ;)

Apartment manager has to do it, I asked if I could re-mount it myself, and she said no.

So, it sits on top of the fridge now, until she gets through the rest of the laundry list of repairs and maintenance that they've had since they took over managing this place.

Damn, I'm disappointed. I thought you were too smart to be a smoker.

Young and stupid + addictive substance + high stress levels = being unable to quit so far.

Farmgirl, I have friends who smoke. I don't tell them they need to quit. They don't tell me I need to start. We get along fine. That said, two situations...

1- This one couple of my friends... he's 53 and she's 38. He started smoking at 10-12... had a heart attack three years ago and had to quit smoking- he's still not smoking after that. She started when she was 15 and she's like you described yourself about this.

2- My brother-in-law quit smoking this last winter. He'd started as a teenager too. He took up dipping some sort of Skoal type stuff to compensate for the nicotine he's not getting after quitting smoking. My sister didn't start smoking; I think she may be part of why he quit.
