In with the new
Gasping for air as she boarded, I suggested she catch her breath as she confirmed she had a pass. We pulled out before the rest of Pompano descended upon us. There must not have been any seats available, because she stayed up front supporting herself against the luggage shelf.
"Whew! I quit smoking 8 weeks ago after smoking 43 years, started when I was 8 or 9. I promised my mom on her deathbed that I'd quit."
You're a lucky woman to have a mom looking out for you like that at the end.
"Yeah, she was a smart one. She also said I should quit my husband, so I did that too."
Sometimes it's just time to move on.
"Out with the old, in with the new!"
