Yes, I know

Dr. Grumpy: "Have you ever been a smoker?"

Mr. Vague: "No. I mean, not that I know of. But you never know. You know?"

So, that means he's a drinker who drinks a lot and has no memory of what he does, so maybe he is a smoker when he drinks and doesn't know it?

What he really means is that he never caught himself smoking.

Makes you wonder what he's smoking.

Maybe he's just afraid to look?

Screamers are like that, you know.

NOW I know you're making things up. This just isn't possible. . .unless you're a seriously intimidating doctor...now that's possible.

Maybe he thought you were asking the old question, "Do you smoke after sex?"

And trying to give the traditional answer, "I don't know, I never looked."

Maybe he's not sure whether he smoked in any of his past lives?

Maybe he thinks a Bong might not count.

Dr Grumpy, you need to take on a psychiatrist as your partner. You would keep them all SO busy.

I must share this VR/dragonism with you.

Voice recognition: He exhibits he masturbates. Should be: He exhibits masked face.

"How many cigarettes do you have to smoke before smoking becomes part of your identity and you turn into a 'smoker?' Does the number go up if they're low-tar, or down if they're unfiltered? And, if you look at the cigarette ads, you see that there are so many different kinds of smokers. Like, a Marlboro smoker is totally different from a Kool smoker. So it's a really complicated question."

When I was 23 I went in for strep throat & the Dr asked a lot of general health questions including, "Are you sexually active?" (!) I replied that I was a virgin. His response was, "How do you know?" Umm, because I've been in my body the entire time I've owned it?

Smokin' like smokin' hot, or smokin' like smokin' pot, smokin' like salmon or beef, or smokin' like hot to trot?

He must be smoking some seriously strong stuff... Or can't remember if be is precisely because its such seriously strong stuff... But he still may not be be smoking at all, you know what I'm saying? :P

Next time I'm asked this question I now want to screw around with my doctor about it. Beats the "you should quit" talk since obviously I know that. Then again, after reading your blog I now understand why doctors have to tell smokers that its bad from them and all because as obvious as that would seem, there are people out there, your patients here who probably have no idea.

PS- haaate the world verification! I'm probably younger than vast majority of your readers and its even hard on my eyes!
