Wonderful that this is day one of year three of this wonderful prompt.  Thank you, Sammi!


“Have you been smoking, Suzie?”

“No, Mémère, why do you say that?”

“Are you absolutely sure you didn’t just smoke a cigarette in the bathroom?”

Today, an ex-smoker, I can smell the slightest whiff of cigarette smoke on a person.  How I ever tried to pull the wool over my grandmother’s eyes was naiveté or a brazen act of bravado.
