    We’ve got a local chain of t-shirt shops here in the Boston area called Johnny Cupcakes. Many tourists enter the shop and then soon exit disappointed that there aren’t any sweets to be purchased within.

    Not being a smoker myself, I get more turned on by the Subway restaurant next door. 😉

    The owner must have been smoking some laced cigarillos when deciding the name🙂 OHHHHH these things are MAGIC!! Wonder if you could sue him for false advertising since they obviously aren’t ‘magic’. Damn those marketing ploys!

    Or maybe you were adding the word “monster”…?

    I’m chuckling over here just imagining the childlike look of hope on your face, dashed instantly with abrupt comprehension of the reality…

    I think we all get that way. It’s not just for kids anymore. For me, it usually happens in bookstores. I think I see a title I’ve been waiting and wanting to read, and it turns out to be entirely the wrong book.

    I’m not a smoker but I could get talked into it if I knew it was MAGICAL.

    That would still get my hopes up.

    It’s false advertising I tell you! Unless it’s a smoke shop/magic shop and you can buy top hats and cheap rope tricks . . . but I bet you can’t . . .

    I wrote two letters to Michael Emerson. I just wanted an autograph.
    I supose is much too ask. I never win.

    And I’m a smoking, not exactly snuff.

    Hope? For the common people? That’s all we have,but you can not pay the mortgage or bills with it.

    I just wanted the paper signed from him.

    Depends on what kind of smokes we’re talkin’ about!

    I smoked weed the other day for the first time in 30 years..thought it would help me sleep..I lay in bed for nearly an hour thinking…’what if I forget to breath?’
    ‘what if I can’t remember how to swallow?’…the shit the make now is a lot stronger than the last nickle bag I bought.
