Leaving work yesterday, I reached for my pack that I always had in my shirt pocket and there was nothing there. Oh yeah! That's right.

I carry around my last pack with me. See, I keep the same things in the same pockets every day. (Same for most men, I believe.)

Left front: plastics & paper (pens, comb, chapstick, matchbook)
Right front: metal (coins, keys, cig pack - has aluminum foil in it, dontcha know)
Right rear: wallet
Left rear: unused at this time

So I have an empty matchbook and an empty pack. It's like my personal little totem. I reached in once, pulled it out, and went "Oh, $#!t!"

My rationale is that that pocket's already "full," so I can't buy any more!

One week, one day, 16 hours, 58 minutes and 26 seconds. 87 cigarettes not smoked, saving $42.45. Life saved: 7 hours, 15 minutes.
