The Light of Her Life...

Smoke Break Saves S.C. Woman From Tree

ROCK HILL, S.C. - Smoking just might have saved Brenda Comers' life.

She said she had just finished washing dishes Monday and stepped outside to smoke a cigarette when an 80-foot oak tree crashed through her roof, landing across the sink where she had been standing just seconds before.

"Honey, I know you fuss at me for smoking," Comers said she told her husband. "But today it saved my life."

The tree, felled by strong wind, also missed the couple's adult daughter, who was at the other end of the house.

The family's insurance agent said they could not live there after the tree cut the kitchen and living room in half. -AP


Okay, as you know... I am TOTALLY against smoking, but it's hard to argue with this woman!
