I went to Walgreens yesterday. I know this is exciting for you to read. I mean after all, who gets to shop at Walgreens? I must say it is one of my favorite stores ……….
I bought Coke Zero and Diet Coke for DS. I bought myself two bottles of nail polish for 99 cents each. I bought some rollers because my hair is straight and I get bored with the curling iron. I bought Kleenex, paper towels and toilet paper. I bought some melatonin because it helps me get to sleep ………………. and as I was going to check out, I saw signs on the E-cigarettes. See, if you have a Balance Rewards Card at Walgreens, you get all these special sales. You have to have the card.
I went and looked at the E-Cig things. I could barely understand which one I need. I knew it had to be green for menthol. Regular cigarettes were already on my shopping list. So —– I bought the E-Cig starter pack (it has a USB connection so you can charge it on your computer – weird) and I bought refills which equal a carton of cigarettes. I got 2 for 14.99. Such a steal considering a carton of cigarettes is $60.
It’s weird. The cigarette is heavy because of the battery. I almost dropped it. I keep trying to flick the ashes off the end of it. I put it down in the ashtray, which is a tea-cup saucer (having thrown out all ashtrays once I decided to quit smoking a 100 years ago). It does taste like menthol. I do get a hit.
We’ll just see if this keeps me from actually smoking a ton of cigarettes. You know, the real ones ……..
