In 3 days, I will quit smoking. What I want to do right now is curl up into a snail--shaped knot and sleep 'till February. That not being possible, I need to psyche myself up. I have to quit. I don't want to. What I want is for them to say, "Oh, hey! We were wrong! It's not cigarettes causing all those dreadful things! It's green beans. (Who doesn't eat green beans?) Smoke all you want - just stay away from the green bean casserole." This doesn't seem likely...not in 3 days, anyway - unless someone is conducting top secret green bean research.
