One of my girlfriends has a bucket list before she turned 20. And she told me that she hasn’t crossed trying a cigarette off the list yet. So she asked me to do it with her. In which I said yes.
Smoking has a very bad reputation to me. To both of us, actually. So the moment we lighted the sticks then put them in our mouths, we felt… nothing. Seriously. We were laughing hard coz we kept on trying to copy the experts but we couldn’t.
A lot of things were going in our minds before smoking, but then while doing it, nothing. See, I couldn’t even describe properly our emotions or whatever. Maybe we were fascinated by the clouds of smoke coming from our mouth. Maybe we were disappointed because we thought differently of it. Or maybe we just really didn’t like it.
Nevertheless, it was an experience. And we kept it a secret because some people would just say anything, any judgment, once they knew. If there’s one thing, at least I helped her cross out another list.
