There isn't a time when I don't remember their routine being: eat, smoke, drink coffee. That was just them. And even though the whole idea of smoking makes me a little concerned and sad -- it's just them. My dad always smells of Lubriderm moisturizer, coffee and cigarettes. My mom smells like Ponds cold cream, coffee and sometimes cigarettes. I know to you, this sounds like it may not smell that great. You're probably thinking, cigarettes? But there is something about it.. it just feels and smells like home to me. It just isn't a bad smell. It smells like familiarity and a certain calmness that I just can't get anywhere else. It isn't overwhelming like some people after they've smoked a few cigarettes and they reek of it. It's not one of those smells. It's just my momma and daddy. It's just normalcy. I love them for it. Even though I hate smoking and I hate what it does to others, I love them for that familiarity.
So just when I couldn't love them anymore.. I do. I love their eat, smoke, drink coffee and repeat cycle. I'll love you guys to the stars and back forever.
