    Well…. cigarettes go up to $13 a pack tomorrow. Gas, over $6 a gallon, and then there is aids… Hmmm Just thinking about the good ole day. Cruising with a chick and a pack of lucky strikes in your short sleeved shirt. Could be an expensive and dangerous proposition? Guess tonight is a good night to quit smoking! Oh yeah… Beer is $13 a six pack here too… Well at least I can still get free internet from my neighbors wireless.
