Family conversation XLIX
After T has, very considerately, gone outside onto the balcony of the Plett flat to have a cigarette…
Mim: You’re not allowed to smoke here.
T: Even on the balcony?
Mim: Even on the balcony.
T: Is that your rule, or the body corporate’s rule?
Mim: She asks, continuing to puff on her cigarette…* It’s both.
T: Okay, I’ll just finish this one, and I won’t do it again. Anyway, I have only six days left before I quit, so I have to smoke as much as possible before then!
* Please note, this is Mim commenting on T’s behaviour, not Mim smoking, which she would never ever do.
