Why I Don’t Smoke And Neither Should You

In my lifetime, I’ve only ever smoked about 3 cigarettes. Two of which were for online marketing (you can see the photo above). A nearly full pack of Marlboro still sits on my nightstand. So why the hypocrisy? Because it proves a point that even saintly figures like me have to pull stunts to establish somekind of persona online just so I can attract visitors to my site and maybe even give me work. It doesn’t mean there is a stronger correlation with being a smoker gets you more work, it just means you gotta try some stuff.

And let me tell you about cigarettes. They suck. They don’t taste good, they stink, and if you’re not the right person, smoking cigarettes will ultimately kill you.

But I’m not in the camp where I tell you not to smoke outright. You don’t have to cave-in to peer pressure either. But if you feel inclined to try it, then try it. But after that, it’s really up to you to decide what you want to do about it. If you’re a no nonsense person like me, it has more to do with keeping up appearances and forking over good hard-earned money is why I won’t take up smoking. And a tiny pack of smokes costs a lot! I think I paid $16 for a pack at my local gas station. I only smoked 2 of 20 cigarettes from it in the past 2 years. So I really don’t care about smoking.

But, as a public service, I suppose I should always tell young people NOT TO SMOKE.

Don’t Discount Mayonnaise Just Yet

All my years eating mayonnaise in sandwiches and egg or tuna salad and it never occurred to me to learn what it actually was. It wasn’t until I watched a clip of popular TV chef Gordon Ramsay show exactly how simple it is to make mayonnaise. Did you know all mayonnaise is simply beaten eggs and oil? Yeah. That’s all it is. So when you have that egg and bacon sandwich slathered with mayo, you may actually be eating twice as many eggs in one meal! And you wonder why you put on so much weight.

But point being, if you are looking for a cheap calorie boost, and you don’t have eggs lying around, then why not make yourself a literal mayo sandwich? I’ve done it and it works wonders. And strange how a jar of mayo seems to last longer than a dozen of actual eggs doesn’t it? That’s because oil doesn’t rot. When you mix the oil in with the egg proteins (that actually can rot), then it changes the nature of it. Granted, you’re also eating a lot of oil too, but eggs be eggs. And the oil may actually make it taste better. It always makes your fast food sandwiches taste better!

So if you a po boy, go make yeself a mayo sandwich and not be ashamed about it. Trust me, it is literally THE SAME THING as eating egg sandwich!
