on my way home from the gym, i stopped at a bodega for a pack of cigarettes.
'american spirits lights' i asked the guy at the counter.
i reached for my money and realized i only had a five and a ten. since i have not purchased cigs in over a year, i honestly have no idea how much they cost these days. he watched as i pondered over this.
'how much' i finally asked, feeling like an utter fool.
'7.5o' he replied, and then he looked at me curiously. 'do you even smoke' he laughed.
'i guess i do now' i smiled.
yes, i realize that purchasing the cigarettes makes me an even bigger fool, but that's a whole other story.
