Sort of relevant bump. I think between the different ways to smoke tobacco, the pipe has become my preferred method. In terms of portion size and time, I think pipes are the most moderate without having to suck on a stogie for half an hour. And they're inconvenient enough that I can't just chain smoke like I can with fags.
True cigar story.
For my father's 50th year birthday, I bought him a very expensive cigar. I don't recall why I thought it was a good idea as he's not a smoker at all.
Anyway, he never got around to smoking it, so it just stayed in its little metallic tube for years and years. Finally he decided to smoke it for his 60th year birthday, and in preparation for it he put it in a home made humidor to get it nice and moist. The humidor was a plastic box and half a potato.
Then he forgot about it untill the day before his birthday. By then it was half covered in a green mold. I think we ended up sharing the half of it that the mold hadnt gotten in to. Was a damn good cigar though.
What a nice cigar story, Ferret. Thank you for sharing.
My nice story has a morale to it.
Well, I'm not sure I understand the moral, but you can actually smoke a moldy cigar, as long as you're not actually putting your mouth on the actual mold. Also, sometimes what looks like mold is actually not mold... it's some sort of oily stuff, basically a good sign.
