Do you smoke?
No, I don’t.
Oh, why not?
It doesn’t really appeal to me.
Oh, but you should smoke! It’s fun!
For you, maybe. Enjoy!
No, no… You MUST smoke! Everyone else does!
That’s great for them, but I’d rather not.
But it feels brilliant! Come on, just try to smoke.
Thanks, but no thanks.
But look at those children there, smoking. Don’t they look happy?
Sure they do. And they’re entitled to that happiness; it’s just something I’d rather not share with them.
Oh, no. You’re smoking, and there are no two ways about it.
No, I’m not… Hey, let go! I don’t want to!
Lovely conversation isn’t it? Go back to the start and replace ‘smoke’ with ‘play holi’. Welcome to my life.
