The story below is not about SeaSpray. It happened some years back to her dear friend Donna. While SeaSpray is an avid scrabble player, she has never smoked cigarettes (other than being a naturally curious 16 yr old who then proceeded to cough and gag - YUK!) and therefore would not have been out buying cigarettes. If this had happened to SeaSpray, you would not be reading this now because, she would've died in the store. :) Besides, trust me - SeaSpray has enough of her own embarrassing moments to tell and will - except for one story. One story that she will never be able to tell - ever - and it is a good one. No - SeaSprays lips are forever sealed on that one . ;)
SeaSpray is totally annoyed right now because although she scanned this story that was sent to her by her friend - she doesn't yet know how to transfer it over to her blog and so has to retype it. Having said that - SeaSpray is totally amused that she is talking in the third person. :)
SeaSpray has removed Donna's story. SeaSpray posted this story because she came across it while cleaning out some paperwork. She had Donna's permission to put it up on her site but she has requested that SeaSpray take it down because she wants to do something with it in the future. So, SeaSpray won't be able to share Donna's funny bird story either. Drats! Double Drats! SeaSpray has said this before - Donna IS the funniest person that SeaSpray knows and they have shared many,many moments of exquisite humor and laughter. :) :) :)
SeaSpray's P.S. Donna had sent this and another story out to some friends via the postal service. A mutual friend of ours and I were cracking up over the phone while reading parts of her letter to each other. We KNOW her and so we could totally envision this debacle. I must confess that at that point in time we didn't feel any empathy or sympathy toward her plight but were instead just falling over in laughter with tears streaming down our faces practically unable to breathe - again, because WE KNOW HER!
