Uncle Fred's Cigar
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     "Uncle Fred," asked Cindy, "what is that?"
2     Cindy pointed to the brown thing in his hand. It looked like a short, thick stick.
3     "This?" Uncle Fred held it up. "This is a cigar."
4     He cut off the tip of one end. Then he lit a match. He held it to the end to start it burning.
5     He took some puffs on the cigar. Then he blew out a small cloud of smoke.
6     Cindy coughed. "Yuck," she said. "That is not nice. It stinks. Can you put it out?"
7     Uncle Fred looked at his cigar.
8     "I suppose I can. I can smoke it later."
9     Uncle Fred pressed the smoky end of the cigar into an ash try. Then he twisted it back and forth. The cigar stopped smoking.
