Then by the time we made it to the pier-- along with a lot of plastic litter-- we had picked up SO many cigarette butts that my husband asked:
"Was there a RJ Reynolds convention here today??" (hmmm)
Not one to normally watch TV, last night my husband turned it on for a split second before watching a movie and there in front of us was this commercial about imagining a world without cigarettes. It made me smile for so many reasons...
I love imaging a world without cigarettes for so many reasons including the fact that a world without cigarettes would be a world without littered cigarette butts. Considering 4.5 trillion are littered every year...and the fact that I've counted thousands.... a world without cigarettes sure would be nice....
... smiling??? I am. :)
