Cigarette machines.
Used to be in restaurants, usually near the exit.
We used to sneak in a place called The Line Up and buy a pack after school.
With the lunch money we saved from skipping lunch for smokes.

We certainly felt like we were getting away with hell, huh?

I never understood the little sign on the machines.
Why were the guys who worked deep in the ground digging up coal, gold and diamonds prohibited from buying cigarettes?:th_lmao:

You know that there were other non-painful products available even way back then. Wise mothers choose this for two reasons one its effective but two it had a painful enough sting to impart a secondary punishment for being careless and getting oneself hurt.

You know a while back I was reflecting back on my life. One of the conclusions I did come to was my Mom was a lot cagier than I ever gave her credit for.

She was a big fan of Mercurochrome herself and always doused us kids liberally with it when we got careless and hurt ourselves. Like she wanted to ensure we were well compensated for our efforts and wouldn't likely pull at least one stupid stunt again.

But then I can also remember the kind compensate mom who could find much gentler means to care for ones wounds that one received in a pure involuntary accident.

PS I was most always at least partly painted Mercurochrome orange, being the daredevil that I was.
