as I walked out of the supermarket towards my car I took a look in the car next to me. It was a very little Ford Fiesta. In the back, I saw two baby seats. In the front of the car, an overflowing ashtray and at least 4 empty and an half empty pack of Lucky strike cigarettes and a lighter... Due to the fact that there where some little teddy bears placed on the dashboard I think it must have been the car of a heavy smoking mother.
I was just thinking about it...
Now, mummy is going with her little childs though the supermarket, buying many things and hopefully her beloved cigarettes as well. Her kids are happy to be out of the always smoke filled car at least until mummy finished her things in the supermarket. I was thinking if they were looking forward to the minute when they would leave the market, Mumms immediately lighting up her next cigarette, taking heavy drags, strapping their little kids in their baby seats, putting in the supermarket stuff she bought. Then she would sit in the car, maybe with windows up, bathing her kids in smoke as they used to be....
Would the kids like it?
Are they used to it?
Do they hate it but knowing that they have not chance to escape they will just accept it?
Will they blame their mother for smoking?
Will they just sit, breath in and maybe even like the smell of smoke always around?
