    I Also Steal Alot of Lighters.

    I don't mean to steal lighters so I figure I lose so many lighters because of karma.

    Where Do They Go?

    I will buy them, set them on my table...and within a few hours they have vanished! I'm hoping when I clean out my couch I'll find them there. But who knows? There has to be at least fifty lighters in this apartment and I have to search everywhere to find one!

    Got Light?

    The cracks between the front seats and the console eat ALOT of my lighters! Just enough out of finger reach, that it's too much effort to dig the stupid thing out until you "clean the car". Good news is: Once the inside of the car is cleaned, I'm good to go for a few...

    The Lighter Gods

    I don't know about u but there is a lighter black hole in my house. It doesn't eat the crappy lighters that come free with a carton, only my good BICs.  I think sometimes the lighter gods require a sacrifice. Usually they reappear after a few months, after i've bought a few...

    It`s Not *my* Fault...

    I get high & people end up pocketing them. Then nobody remembers until afterwards. Sometimes I get them back, sometimes i don`t. & sometimes I end up  pocketing other people`s lighters. It just happens.

    Probably My Fault

    Yeah, if one of my friends ever has a lighter and uses it and then doesn't put it back in their pocket/purse, I put it in mine. It actually got to be kinda funny. When I was in England I was around a lot of people who smoked, and they'd all leave their lighters around, and I'd...
