Smoking in France

French people smoke like chimneys. I have stopped noticing when I stand in line and breathe someone's second-hand smoke, and I definitely don't notice when I walk through someone's small cloud of ash on my way to anywhere.

The other day, a French girl asked me for a lighter.

"Sorry, I don't have one," I said.

"Oh yeah. I forgot smoking wasn't cool in America anymore," she replied.

While I would never have thought about Americans smoking from this perspective before, in comparison to zee French, she is definitely right.
