Reader's Digest, "Humor in Dreams"

I was in a tobacco shop trying to buy a pack of Starbucks cigaretttes from the shopkeeper.

He didn't know what I was talking about, and from behind the counter he pulled down several packs of different cigarettes.

Finally, I spotted the ones I wanted and pointed to them. They were Marlboros in a green pack, not Starbucks as I insisted.

Realizing my mistake, I quipped, "Well, at least they haven't cornered the cigarette market, too."

My comic timing and on-spot social analysis had the shopkeeper in hysterics.
