As an avid moviegoer, I usually fall prey to the glamorization of smokers who erotically pull life through their mouths and carefully concentrate on the messages in the swirls of gray they release. Of course, the question of health also comes into play, and so, "A Final Note" for this nonsmoker is an ode to smoking and the effects it has on me.
