Cigarettes Are a Great Way to Make Friends

(A one act play based off of a true event.)

A LARGE GROUP OF FRIENDS SMOKING CIGARETTES, ON A BRICK PATIO IN THE BACK. GUY #1 IS STANDING TO THE RIGHT OF TOMMY, WHO IS STANDING TO THE RIGHT OF RACHEL. TOMMY AND RACHEL ARE DATING.

GUY #1: If you carry around a pack of cigarettes you’ll make friends.

TOMMY: Yeah! I met a good friend that way, who introduced me to a really good friend who introduced me to Rachel. If I never smoked cigarettes I probably wouldn’t have met Rachel.

RACHEL: Romantic.

Group laughs.

End scene.
