“I Never Met a Girl Like You Before”

OK , so last week ran across the river to the “Smilin’ Smoker”, a little place in Covington, Ky that sells cigarettes and alcohol and my favorite feature? The drive thru…

So I pulled up to the drive-thru and ordered some cigarettes and asked the clerk to grab me a lighter.

I told him “I trust your judgement, just pick one out for me”.

When I got home I opened the bag up and got the cigs and lighter out, and just happened to glance down at the lighter. And what does it say? “Playboy – I read the articles”

I’m not really sure why it struck me as hilarious, but it did.

Do I look like a girl who “reads the articles”? Or who would be happy to carry around a lighter with the Playboy bunny logo on it? Or was the clerk just taking my trust and his power to make a subtle impact on my life just a little too far? Or did he just think he was being funny? Or did he just grab the first lighter within reach… You decide.

So next time I head to the Smilin’ Smoker I pick out my own lighter AND I’m going to look at the pictures! So there.

  1. That’s totally hilarious! I think the clerk correctly identified you as a literary-minded type and decided to pay homage with the (admittedly less than appropriate) tools at his disposal. Maybe next time he’ll give a nod to your visual sensibilities by handing you one of those lighters with a photo of a lady who strips when you turn her upside down.
