Murfreesboro wrote:Not sure what to make of this one I had in the late '90s:
One night, as I was lying in bed with my husband, I was awakened by the smell of cigarette smoke. Very powerful scent, and I woke my husband, but he said he didn't smell it. I continued to do so, however. No one in my family smokes, and it was a rainy night, so it is unlikely that I was smelling anything from outside the house. I fell back asleep.
The next day, while my husband was at work, I was rummaging through some drawers and storage spaces, looking for some cash I thought I had put by. I ran across a box of letters my father had written to my mother during WWII. One in particular caught my eye. Its date was the same date in late November. It had been written 50-something years to the day on the day I found it.
I was excited, because my father had died of lung cancer when I was 7, so I never knew him well. The letter was several pages long and told my mother a great deal about his experiences in England, France and Germany. They were newlyweds, and he had written as entertainingly as he could to amuse his bride. I forgot all about looking for the money and waited eagerly to share this letter with my husband when he came home from work.
When I shared my find with him, however, he got really quiet and gave me a long, strange look. I said, "What's wrong?" And he said, "Don't you know?" I was dumbfounded, couldn't imagine what he meant. He said, "Don't you remember what happened last night?" I thought for a long moment, and then I said, "Oh, the cigarette smoke!" My father had been a heavy smoker, a five-pack-a-day-man. My husband said to me, "You can stop that now."
