"The Mick" a smoke-long story

The Chinese called them smoke-long stories since they were written at a length to be consumed in the time it took someone to smoke a cigarette. These days, the term "flash fiction" gets thrown around to describe the form. I like the Chinese way better. Either way, you can read this tale in about as long as it would take to light a smoke on a windy day.
