It was a hot July Sunday— a very hot day. I was at the gas station when a kid came in and asked for cigarettes. He didn’t have an ID, so the clerk refused him.
Such a good law.
A hot July Sunday. Just like the day Dad died. He died from smoking.
Even after all the warnings about cigarette smoking, he continued to smoke.
It’s hard, 17 years after his death, to not be mad at Dad because of how he died.
