x365: 46 of 365: the cabdriver who misheard me

Did you seriously think we were stopping for a jar of pickles on the way home from the bar on Friday night? Here is a brief list of the things you stop for at the 7-Eleven after a night of drink and loud talk:

beef jerky
those horrible chicken wings
more beer, if you live in one of those places where you can get beer at a 7-Eleven, which I don't, because most of Canada has Victorian-era liquor laws.
cigarettes, for the smokers
cigarette papers, for the upsmokers
random junk food, to taste
healthy Zima

Pickles is not on that list.

i reiterate sgazzeti & tiana's comments and:

"cigarette papers, for the upsmokers"

up-smokers, nice usage, think i'm going to adopt that one, thanks!

Errmm...was the cabdriver pregnant?

sgazzetti - You're not wrong.

tiana - Like they say in The Village, that would be telling.

I can't leave you hanging. It was papers.

wench - Upsmokers unite?

witchypoo - I didn't ask him.

Don't forget the coagulated processed cheese product with a side of tortilla chips.
