Paradox or Irony?


A few years ago, I had made a stop at one of those 'water to go' shops, where they have... um, water to go?

Right.

And the salesman was going on and on about how I ought to buy a specific kind of container for my water, and how I needed to invest in reverse osmosis for my shower water, etc, etc.

Really, all I wanted was a refill for my current water bottle; that yes, was made out of plastic, but I was reusing it... so don't throw me to the wolves just yet.

So here he is, having a conniption fit about harsh trace minerals and chemicals and deposits in the H20 from my tap; and twenty minutes later (after we had ducked out and had lunch at a sandwich stop next door) he's in front of his fancy purified water to go shop, and he's ... (wait for it)....



smoking.

That read so smooth and clean, like purified reverse osmosis water.

People are so funny!

Nothing infuriates me more, then people like that. Except for Hippies. I hate Hippies.

I don't see what the big deal is. Smoking makes you sexy.
