Smoke ‘em if you’ve got ‘em

Dan, Sean, Greg, Chad, and I enjoying some fine Cubans and some fine company.

One advantage to living in Canada is Cuban cigars are legal. I had never smoked a cigar in my life but Greg suggested that I should bring some fine imports down with me. Finally last night we got together and hung out on a street corner on Capital Hill at 2:00 am and started a trek towards lung cancer… ok, maybe not a trek… I must say I enjoyed it, not something I could do very often, but I am definitely down with hanging out with good friends and taking a few puffs.

Doesn’t Dan look like the Cuban poster-boy with that shirt? And take note that to compliment the dignified nature of and / or pretentiousness of our cigar smoking, we had root beer and Mountain Dew. Classic. Good times had by all… until this morning when it tasted like (in Chad’s words) something had crawled in my mouth and died.


PS. Does anyone know all the “rules” to cigar smoking? They all sound pretty pretentious if you ask me. But I am not quite as “cultured” as some.

    no but in grad school I chewed some tobacco for the first time and threw up all over the
    and I thought I was cool…..

    Heh, I was glad I didn’t throw up. I was extremely worried I wouldn’t understand how to not actually inhale, but fortunately I didn’t suck any smoke. I just figure that I am in grad school, I have to be pretentious some how…

    the only cigar i ever smoked was pretty cheap and i hated it. i think i’d enjoy a cuban cigar. at least, i could picture myself enjoying it. not in the monika lewinsky way, but y’know, in the frank sinatra way.

    The Cuban was pretty decent, although I have nothing to compare it to. It was one of the cheaper Cubans (I think it was around $15 CDN) so I am curious as to what the expensive ones taste like. They sure do smell hella bad.

    Haaaaaaaahahahahahahahahaha! What a great picture. I’ve never smoked anything in my life…just the idea kinda nauseates me, so I’m very sure what my reaction would be if I actually did it.

    Heh, yeah, I had never smoked anything either. It was a pretty fun experience for the most part. I was quite surprised I didn’t throw up. As long as it isn’t inhaled or get in your eyes, should be fine. ;)

    Blechh I remember smoking a cigar once. I turned green after a few puffs off of it. btw, When you
    smoke Cuban Cigars, you are supporting the tyrannical regime of Fidel Castro. :)

    I would definitely not be able to do that very often, my stomach would not handle it! Supporting Fidel is my act of rebellion! ;)
