I just called dad to tell him to ask J.W. tomorrow where he gets his cigarettes. J.W. smokes and he doesn’t have a lot of money so I thought he may know where to get cheap cigarettes. Dad was excited about the idea as he pays for my cigarettes and it is now $80 dollars for two cartons of the cigarettes I smoke these days – not knowing of any cheaper alternatives.
“Didn’t you tell me your professor friend has been telling you to smoke pipe tobacco?” dad also asked.
“My pipe is broken,” I replied.
“Do you think it will be cheaper to smoke pipe tobacco?” dad then asked.
“I think it would be considerably cheaper and more satisfying,” I replied.
“We are headed to discount tobacco in Opelika to get you a new pipe and some pipe tobacco this weekend,” dad told me.
I hung up the phone smiling. Ah, the art of smoking pipe tobacco. How I have missed it. I hope my professor friend will be pleased with this post.
