Let the. Smoke

I am a geriatric physician and have been attending patients in nursing homes for 40 years. This story makes a great point. At 90, hell, 85 you should be allowed to do anything you want. When I am 90 my diet will consist only of Big Macs and Klondike bars.

This story is the best

I'm now Rolli's biggest fan. What a fantastic, punchy story. I don't like smoking (never have) but I don't have to. It's this lady's personality I love. Not enough people write about the relationship between the old and the young, and the few that do layer it with sappiness. Here, we have a direct, honest portrayal, a portrait. Also, who the hell do we think we are to think we can tell elderly people how to spend their last days? There's a comment on power here.
