Old Nicotina

Hello Dear Reader,
Grandpa (Laning) Hall teased his girls a lot about their boyfriends. One time Lois, Grandma (Mary) Carter’s sister, had a date with a young man that smoked. The whole family smelled tobacco on him when he came to pick Lois up. They nearly went into shock.

When Lois got up the next morning Laning said, “Well how was ‘Old Nicotina’ last night?” Lois started screaming, had a tantrum, and ran into the bedroom. She flung herself on the bed and pounded her fists on her pillow. The whole family listened to her bawl. Grandpa just called him “Nicotina” and Lois never went out with him again. As far as I know, none of the rest of them ever dated anyone who smoked either.
