Last Monday I was waiting for the 61 bus in downtown St. Paul, at the dicey 5th/Cedar stop. In the bus shelter were two women and a toddler, a cute little boy with a smile for everyone.
Well, his mom was smoking a cigarette, so he thought he'd learn from her. He bent down and picked up a discarded cigarette butt and tried to put it in his mouth.
His mom yelled at him and smacked it out of his hand. Then she finished her cigarette and tossed the butt to the ground.
Oh, the cycle of life.
