After a shot to the head I lean more toward quoting Curly of the Three Stooges. He was quite eloquent in those situations. (Eloquent and erudite are not synonyms.)
We have a cardboard scratching block hanging from the patio door handle to dissuade the cats from scratching up the doorway. The cats scratch on both now.

COPD is like a drawn-out version of severe COVID-19, but not as potentially painful. Very bad news.
Don’t tease us.
I have a brother who started smoking around age 13 and quit around age 20. I agree with you… why???
None of my friends ever smoked – smoking is one of the major sorting factors in teenaged friendships. Smokers want to hang with smokers, and nonsmokers want to be far away from it.
My wife has COPD and has never smoked, However, she lived with two heavy smokers for two decades when she was young.
My mother-in-law told my wife, just before dying of a cancer that started in her lungs and spread to her brain, that she wished she had stopped smoking earlier. My wife had been on her about it since long before she developed emphysema. So much sadness and regret.
My nose is useless, but my throat constricts at the slightest whiff of cigarette smoke – not cigar, pipe, or other tobacco smoke. When driving I sometimes have to change lanes when somebody in the car ahead is smoking.
The saddest job I have seen was when taking a load of trash to the dump. There was a sour looking guy sitting on the ground holding a sign with an arrow pointing the way.
