    I know that - duhh. I was turning the knife in the wound for foreign readers.

    22 euros for a carton? bagatelle.

    actually, i found a shop in town that buy from and asked how many they had left and they had a carton 'n' a few so i snapped them up cough wheeze splutter.

    Just to check my numbers I took in some hoardings at the the corner store. They had a "special" on camels @ $6.10 a pack. Cough splutter is right. My dirty little secret: every week or two I jones for a cig. The same corner store, with, btw a very active crack trade in the parking lot, sells single Marlboros under the counter at $.75 per. Good dog Sam and I puff our way through the park.
