I don’t smoke and I’ll tell you why. When I was a little boy in elementary school, we had a guest speaker come in to talk to us about smoking. We all sat cross-legged on the orange carpeted floor of the library as the speaker showed us a full-sized cut away mannequin with one healthy lung and one damaged lung of a smoker.
The lung looked much worse than the one pictured above and it really impacted my growing little brain. There was no way in Hell I would ever smoke. I’m 45 now and there is still no way in Hell I will ever smoke. I haven’t forgotten the lesson tought to me by a stranger. I don’t have to learn the hard way. You only get one set of lungs.
So while my mind is boggling when I see people smoking I can’t help but ask. Which set of lungs pictured above match yours? Mine is the nice clean, healthy pink one on the left.
