How to Explain Your White Cloud E-Cigarette to Others
As White Cloud users, we’re preconditioned to expect questions whenever we use an e-cigarette in public places. But, after fielding the umpteenth question about how I can smoke without fire, I can get a little tired of repeating the same thing over and over again …
It’s like “Groundhog Day” meets every Cypress Hill song ever made — redundant and boring.
(Man, am I showing my age here…)
So, whenever the mood strikes (and I’m not at risk of offending short-tempered people larger than me), I bust out a little harmless sarcasm to break up the monotony. Being that today is April Fool’s Day, here are some of my favorite replies to some all-too-common questions about White Cloud and e-cigarettes.
Q: “What the [expletive] is that thing?”“It’s a straw for my — oh, crap, where’s my Mello Yello?” “World’s. Worst. Pez dispenser.” “My priest told me I needed to purify my soul, so I’m freebasing leftover incense.”
Q: “Does it taste like a ‘real’ cigarette?”“Only if a real cigarette tastes like rainbows and newborn kittens.” “No, but it does taste like a hearty veal parm grinder.” “Only on the fourth Thursday of each month. Plan accordingly.”
Q: “Do e-cigarettes work?”“In this economy? Only 15 hours a week.” “Yes, but it occasionally gives off steam.” “No, that’s the ‘off’ light.”
Yeah, sarcasm doesn’t answer everything. But the rest of these remarks might make your usual bar/restaurant/office smoke break a little more interesting.
Or, you can do like most (normal) people do, by answering the questions politely, referring them to our FAQ page, and just enjoying your White Cloud e-cigs.
