Cake and Cigarettes...

Amusing incident last night. You know that old addage about how a lady never reveals her age? Well, I'm 29. I quit smoking 9 years ago but last night I was very restless and for some reason, craving cigarettes. Cigarettes and frosting/icing. I'm eating disordered. I've been bulimic for almost 17 years but in recovery for the past 7 until a few months ago. I don't like cake, just frosting.


Back to the point. I haven't bought a back of cigarettes in nearly a decade. I went to the gas station on the corner, asked for a pack of Camel Lights. The attendant asked for my ID, which I promptly gave him. He looked at me, looked at my ID, asked me my age, I told him.... than informed me the I must be at least 18 to buy cigarettes ::shockface:: He wouldn't sell me a pack of cigarettes with my state issued driver's license b/c he thought I looked too young! I guess that's a compliment, and I took it as such, but really now? I was both annoyed and amused at the same time.

I went to the grocery and got cigarettes and a cake. Sat in the parking lot with my oreo cake. Had a few fingers full of frosting before I was disgusted enough with myself to dump the rest of the cake onto the parking lot and took off to drive aimlessly and enjoy blackening my lungs. 

Btw, the new flame retardant shit they put in cigarettes... bullshit. It's fucks with manual dexterity. Frankly, if some fucker is dumb enough to fall asleep with a cigarette in their mouth they probably deserve to get burned.
