When you meet a guy for the first time at a party or a function, you shake his hand, act most cordial, and tell him it was nice to meet. But after a little small talk and some conversation, you discover that he is a cigar smoker. And likewise, he discovers that you are a lover of the leaf as well. Suddenly, two perfect strangers who have never crossed paths become bestest buddies in the whole wide world. In fact, no one else at this shindig seems to exist any longer as you and your newfound buddy sneak off to a secluded spot outdoors where you light up a couple of premium sticks as you bond and relax while exchanging war stories and bouts with your favorite cigars.

“Honey, where are you?” a familiar voice cries out from the dark, as you roll your eyes knowing that playtime has come to an end.

“Damn, it’s the wife,” you utter in a disgruntled tone, knowing that she’ll be a pissy nag when she finds that you’ve ditched her friends for your new Pepin, Partagas, and Padilla, playmate. She smells the trail of smoldering Honduran from a hundred yards away and you know that happy-time has officially ended for the evening.

Recently, the little woman was called out of town for a few days and an impromptu gathering of testosterone seemed to be in perfect order. A barbecue at my pad would be a blast – good chow, great drink, and of course, a bevy of finely aged, premium tobacco. Sure, it was short notice, but who in their right mind could pass up a sausage fest as cool as this? No nagging broads to tell you that you eat like a jackal and smell like an out of control car fire. As Flounder said in Animal House, “Oh boy… this is great!”

Strange that i log in today and the first thing that catches my eye is this. This completely sums up the first part of my day yesterday morning. Met a BOTL after damn near a year of misses, and this is exactly how it went.Like we knew each other from a past life. And when you say"cigars have the power to touch the soul" , I'm in complete agreement.

..."pissy nags" "nagging broads," etc...ease up with the disparaging remarks, eh? I'm sorry that you've had bad luck with women. I can't commiserate (and neither can the other BoTLs I know personally); mine pics em out for me and has actually been known to smoke a stick or two.

In any case, it seriously undermined the rest of your hard work...I stopped reading after the first page because of the misogyny. If it was meant as tongue-n-cheek, it didn't come off that way.

Thanks Big D. I'm glad you enjoyed the article.

Dear Ms. A Bit Offended,

Wow. I didn't know there were such sensitive people here. I was going to recommend a good Clint Eastwood movie, like Sudden Impact or Dirty Harry, but you would probably do better with The Bridges of Madison County.

Which cigar does your wife pick for you?

I would avoid watching the video here where Melissa interviews Robert of Camacho Cigars ... at least don't listen to his first line. It's very naughty and your wife wouldn't appreciate it.
