In the van today, Sebastian asked me, "Mom, why did people invent smoking?"
About a million thoughts ran through my mind... what little I know of the history of tobacco, the motivations for smoking, blah blah. But, as I was feeling rather lazy and not in the mood to go into all that, I took the easy way out and simply said, "I don't know Bud."
Then (of course) Meagan chimed in... "Maybe it's because they want to die faster. Smoking makes you die, doesn't it?"
I smiled. I guess I won't have to have the 'don't smoke' talk with her!!
