Like I wrote awhile back, we get our smokes from a native-run smoke shop along the highway about 30 km from home. In stores a single pack of the cheapest smokes goes for $8.45 (approx. $70 a carton) whereas we can pick up a whole carton from the native shop for just $12 or $15.
The native smokes come in a zip-lock plastic baggie. Like all smokes sold in Canada they have to have a health warning on them. In order to comply, the native smokes get stuck with an address label that has a warning typed on it.
When we finish a baggie full, we dump out the loose bits of tobacco and save the baggie. Well normally I never read the label on the baggie, but today as I was putting an empty one into a kitchen drawer, I happened to notice what it said. And I just had to laugh…
Noting the desperation in my previous post – well, its all true. Yet right now I’m feeling (a false sense) fairly safe and contented. This is because we obtained quite a stash which means there’s no worries for a couple weeks. Because of that relative length of knowing we’re supplied, its like I have no worries right now. Of course, this will all change by the end of next week as the bottom of the bottle will start appearing, and the necessity of re-supplying rears its incessant demands. But for now, all is quiet, and everything is chill.
It is such a relief to have a few days of respite…
