Cigarette Pack Surprise

Cigarette Pack Surprise

This is about the time in the Santa Monica ready room when one of the big bosses was visiting and asked the tech if he could borrow a cigarette. The tech pulled out open a soft pack of Marlboros and shook a cigarette out for the big boss to catch. When it came out it wasn’t a cigarette.
