This morning, I stepped outside to have a cigarette (yeah, I don't smoke indoors) and enjoy my cup of tea. This thought occurred as I gazed over the haze. Actually I agree.

We invent the wheel, yet now we walk more.
Lazy. They're all dirty, and in the bottom of the sink.....(I think)
We invent eating utensils, yet we now eat some foods with our fingers.
Yes. Stairs for going down, but not up. I'm sure there's been at least one time in my life when I waited close to 10 minutes for an elevator to take me up 2 floors.......
We invent the elevator, yet we use the stairs.
We invent stores and shops to buy food yet we still hunt and gather.

My father was a heavy smoker and tea drinker. He started when he was 14 and was at 3 packs a day for decades. His lungs gave out and he died at age 79. That's a long life you say .. especially for a heavy smoker. Yes, I reply, but look at how long he could have gone if he didn't smoke? His mother lived to be 94. My father could have had another 20 years of good living in him .. but his smoking cut that short.
