"December 7, 2005 - Chicago is now a smoke-free city. Starting in January you won't see anyone lighting up in most public places. The city council approved a smoking ban Wednesday. The ordinance is a compromise hammered out in negotiations that didn't end until early Wednesday morning."
So it finally happened. Chicago has fallen, we probably will soon too, and it's smoky drapery is going to become a little clearer. This just means that my jobs going to get a little harder. Oh well, if it happens here, it'll just be another reason for people to think of me more as an ass. I can see it now...
"Hey man, can I step out to have a smoke?"
"Sure, but you'll have to wait in line to get back in."
"What? That's bullshit!"
"Oh well, take it up with the mayor."
"Man, you wanna fight?"
So many good times ahead. It'll definitely be weird throwing people out for smoking. Good thing I'll be working so I can come and go as I please.
Hmm, maybe we'll open a patio...
