Dumbass Market

Daily Draw: Victorian Fairy Tarot ~ Devil/Goblin Market

Wow. Here is a concept that is easy to understated. Where the perfumes burn, the fabrics constrict, the fruits gag and choke. And every single thing we picked for ourselves. At the root, possessions and habits that shout dumbass the second we claim them.

I'm reminded by this market no one made me smoke that first cigarette. I did it because I was the only one in my group who didn't smoke. There you go...dumbass by choice.

If I started at seventeen, that first year was patchy, maybe one or two packs a week. After that I moved up to two packs a day. Until I was forty-five ish. That works out to 394,200 cigarettes. 394,200 times I poisoned people I knew with second hand smoke. Arrughhh...

    1. I used determination and Nicorette gum but I think the big quit was because I was too old to go outside and sit on the curb to smoke.

  2. I can't count all the dumbass, harmful things I did all in the hopes of being to 'a part of.'

    1. don't plan (couldn't) on counting them all, but the good news is we are so much wiser now. Not to say we might not still accidentally dip into the Goblin's Market...but I do like wiser.

  3. Count me in that same dumbass group. I have done some dumb-assed things in my life, smoking probably one of the biggest. All that money up in smoke and I can't say the devil made me do it.
