If I Were Still A Smoker

Blog Post created by jonescarp.aka.dale.Jan_2007 on Sep 12, 2017

I would have smoked a lot this morning.

      I'm a meticulous bargain hunter at the grocery stores. I'm not cheap and I'm not a haggler and I normally don't go to the chain that is the furthest away, but, they had watermelon on sale. 

      I decide to take a back way in the dark, to show how smart I think I am and I can't see ANY of the cross streets markings so I'm virtually driving blind. I finally get to my turn and get to the first store.   I saved $5.46  :-)

      I have two more stores and I'm not used to approaching the 2nd store from this direction. I was going 65 in a 45 when I realize

HEY, YOU'RE GOING TO MISS YOUR TURN!

      I  slammed on my brakes going 65 and I'm thinking. Hmm, I hear someone skidding. I'm beginning to inhale burning rubber. THAT SOMEONE IS ME,

Then the truck started skipping and jerking and I'm thinking,

"MISS THE ISLAND, MISS THE ISLAND!"

      I did by half a foot and pulled into the parking lot with a cab full of burning rubber smoke.

 

   I just wanted to confirm,

you can have just as much fun as a non smoker.

I got my dopamine from the danger, not a smoke afterwards

 

Nothing eventful at the third store except they didn't have what I wanted.  :-)
