I'm now reading J.D. Salinger's awesome book of short stories called Nine Stories. He's such a nineteen fifties writer. You can tell because the characters in his stories are always smoking. And smoking nonchalantly. Not that I have anything against smoking [except it causing cancer and all]. I just think it's funny how the time has passed where something, that, at one time, wasn't a big deal, causes readers to internally shake thier heads in dismay.
I want to write a Salinger inspired story. But my story will be set in the ghetto. And, because it's set in the ghetto, I'll cram full of things like nonchallant crack smoking.
I could also make whitetrash characters that live in trailor parks. I'll load the stories with nonchallant smoking. And drinking good beer like "Busch Light".
