None of us saw it happen, but it seems someone threw an egg from a car as it sped through the red light. It was amazing, really. The thing didn't shatter until it hit the pavement, and questionably, it ricocheted off a lamp post before hitting Luis. The cruelty! The brutality of breakfast food! Either way, smokers, friends of smokers, loiterers — watch your back and don't stand too close to the curb.

surgeon general's warning
What additional indignities must smokers suffer now that the smoking ban has gone into effect? First being driven into the street and now this — drive-by eggings? That's right, folks, eggings, maybe toilet-papering and prank phone calls are next? On Sunday night Nick and I went to witness a little soul shakin' and savin' at The Skylark. We stepped outside to enjoy a bit of smoke-tinged city air with our friends Megan, balanced on crutches, and Luis. As we stood chatting, we heard a clang, then Luis fell over clutching his shoulder, I've been hit!
