I'm living for giving the devil his due...

How did I ever miss this? I love Zippos. The heavy click and clack of opening and closing, the smell of lighter fluid, the flint, the wheel, the weight of it...

I'm inexplicably attracted to men who use a Zippo. It must be a subconscious childhood thing, but I never saw my father smoke. He was in a car accident shortly after I was born and quit smoking while he was in the hospital with his jaw wired shut. He did have a Zippo, though it was relegated to the drawer where he kept his military medals and crap. Some of the men I dated had Zippos. But the one I really fell for is the one I used to have with my name engraved down the front (not just "Kelly," but "KELLY LOVE" in all caps). It was weighty, stainless steel, and it felt so good in my hand I used to light the cigarettes of total strangers without being asked. Then I lost it and it's been downhill ever since.

  1. That's some good writing.

    Sort of makes me think about the trade offs, you know, of not being part of that rock-n-roll lifestyle.

    Sure, you lose the trueness of zippo, but you also lose the leather skin and lung cancer. I guess it's just a matter of deciding which one you like more. Good health, or being a badass.

    I used to love spending the days out in the sun, for instance. But once I was diagnosed with cancer, everything changed. Now, I walk in the shadows and am trying to come to terms with how I can keep myself from going stark raving mad from being confined all day.

    I might have to move to London, where the sun doesn't shine.

  2. I stay out of the sun just because I'm very pale anyway. My friends give me a hard time because I will cross the street in order to walk on the shady side.

    I would love to live somewhere like London or the Pacific Northwest where it's cloudy a lot.

    I will always miss my Zippo.

  3. Yeah, I love Zippos too. I have a great one that a friend gave me in Prague. I don't even remember his name but I still have the Zippo tucked away safely in a drawer. It's a tarnished gold with the Marlboro emblem on it. I don't use it but I know exactly where it is and will never give it up.
