A way to say "ciggarette break" without
your boss knowing that you're going to have a smoke. Especially
useful in non-smoking environments. The term
"fresh air" can also
be used to mean "ciggarette" but is not typically
necessary and doesn't sound right in most contexts.
1: I'm going out for a fresh air break
Boss: Ok, just be back in 15
2: (whisper) He doesn't know you mean you're going for a smoke?
1: (whisper) No! That's the point!
