Writer's Workshop Assignment

This week over at Mama Kat's, the writer's workshop prompts are posted and I chose to blog about one of my pet peeves (prompt number 4). If I hit one of your nerves, to f$^%ing bad!! This is my blog and you don't get a vote. You can , however, leave me some comment "love". I'll take it in stride and I won't blogstalk you back for revenge (because I just don't give a crap).
So here are the prompts:
1.) If you were starring on American Idol TONIGHT and HAD to sing, what song would you choose and why.
2.) Take a picture of yourself right this minute without primping and explain to us why it is you have not washed your hair today.
3.) I just asked Pat to help me with a writing prompt so here's his: "What do you think about the NBA All Star game"...blech.
4.) What's your number one pet peeve? Develop a punishment for anyone caught in the act.
5.) Write about something mean you did to a sibling growing up.
My number one pet peeve is ignorant smokers. I have no problem with smokers in general, in deed, I enjoy a smoke on occasion. However, ignorant smokers are an entirely different story. We all see them in our everyday lives. The truly ignorant smokers are easy to pick out. They are the ones who are seen discarding their cigarettes as far as they can flick them (even though they are huddled with the rest of the smokers RIGHT NEXT TO AN ASHTRAY). They are the ones who are tossing their cigarette butts out their car windows on to the street (even though their car COMES WITH AN ASHTRAY). They are the ones that light up in side the restrooms and other enclosed facilities (even though THERE ARE SIGNS POSTED EVERYWHERE about not smoking inside). But the most ignorant smoker is the drunk smoker! That one dumb-ass in the crowd who casually burns people who happen to wander to close to the end of their lit cigarette. Never mind that they have no idea where the flaming end of their voluntary torture device is, they are drunk and it isn't burning them, right?! RIGHT!! There are likely many more encounters with ignorant smokers which I am leaving out (and I'll make mental note of them when I think of them later), but for the sake of saving you some time I'll skip to the punishment phase now. In my humble opinion, the best way to cure/punish these ignorant smokers would be to make them eat their cigarette butts every time they are caught being a dumb-ass! This would help cut down on pollution, cut down on smoking, and cut down on obesity. Shoot, all those snack foods they market at us are unhealthy as all hell anyway, so the big cigarette conglomerations can start looking at ways to make their filters out of all this unhealthy snack food fibers. That would be more economical too!! So, please please pretty please, help us out smokers if you would. Eat your butts and make a dent in the ugliness that is plaguing America!!
Besides, if you don't I'll send Black Hockey Jesus around to forecheck your ass into the wall!!


  1. I'm with you. I DO have a big problem with smoking in general, but if it's not affecting me directly, I can live with it. HOWEVER, I do think that people who smoke in their cars with their little kids in the back ought to be drawn and quartered. And then shot. Then drowned. Then kicked for good measure. Just sayin'.

  2. Yeah, I agree. The ignorant smokers are getting flack here because of the bushfire risk from flicked butts.


    I'm with ya'!
