As already mentioned, the ban on smoking in public places comes into force on Sunday (which also happens to be my birthday, so I’ll probably be having a fairly wet ‘n’ windy time outside a pub somewhere…)*
What’s the general opinion? Sanctimonious?** Sympathetic? Unwilling to divest yourselves of a toss? Time for a new poll. Long live fags, as the Eton prefect said to Elton John!
* - apart from being the dawn of my 35th year on this planet, Sunday is, more importantly, Canada Day. See, Kyklops, I remebered! God keep your land glorious and free! (of baby seals…)
** on the subject of sanctimony - and I’ve probably mentioned this before - one of the things I hate MOST IN THE WORLD is when someone at Wimbledon takes a photo and forgets about his / her automatic flash. Whereupon the umpire makes an announcement along the lines of “please do not use flash photography” and the rest of the spectators applaud, as if to say “Yeah. Ner-ner-ner-ner-ner. Bad man, with your flash photography. I’d NEVER do that.” Self-righteous arseholes.
