Its been a long time, but that is because I really have had little to write about. Until tonight… I saw the coolest thing tonight. We were at ourpub that we frequent on a fairly regular basis. A girl wearing short black shorts, a white tank top carrying a black box strung around her neck. Much like cigarette girls of days of old. Only because of tobacco display law she couldn’t display what she was selling. My boyfriend asked what are you selling. I say- read the label displayed on her box. It was a tobacco warning label. The only clue that she is selling delicious cigarettes.

The bar was pretty dead for a Friday night so she chatted with us for awhile. We told her that we though it was awesome that she was selling cigarettes, although none of us bought any. We figured that they would be like $15 a pack. But on principle we wanted to buy a pack from her. I mean when is the next time we would see a cigarette girl selling cigarettes in the bar? The three of us that turned 18 before the time of cigarette prohibition in bars remarked that we had never even seen a cigarette girl back when you could smoke in bars. But then my boyfriend remarked- maybe we are bringing smoking back. And we launched into fantasies about opening a private smoking club…
