miscellaneous tidbits on marketing, advertising, and life in general

Did not see this coming


Funny little stories related to the fact that I quit smoking keep on happening to me. Even more so now that Vesko also quit (11 days today!!).

One that took us by surprise was two nights ago – which was the first night we spent at our new home. We had been renovating the apartment with lots of love and enthusiasm for a little over an year and we wanted our first dinner there to be special. We decided against a fancy meal and instead I chose one of my favorite soups that I learned making from my mom, since in my book soup equals a cozy homey feeling (which reminds me of a funny story I will post here a little later).

The table (actually, the bar … YEAH, we have a bar at home!!!) was set for two and the only thing missing was a nice candle.

I looked around and asked Vesko for a light. And right there and then it happened – (if someone had told me four months ago that we’d find ourselves in such a situation I would have laughed hard in their face) – we, the people who until recently smoked two packs a day, did not have a single lighter. Who would have thought?
