On running into someone at a meeting...
Me: How've you been? I haven't seen you in awhile.
Her: Oh, girl... it's good to be back. The pneumonia shot nearly took me down.
Her: I have to get it, you know. I've had pneumonia five times. I have chronic emphysema, not to mention asthma. I do breathing treatments daily. That's why my voice always sounds so raspy.
Me: Poor thing... do you smoke?
She looks away. End of conversation.
