What I’m Smoking Right Now
CARROLLTON – At this moment in time, I am not smoking anything. It is 11:20 on 3/1/09, and I am in my pajamas. I am writing this as a sort of dummy article for inclusion in this new version of The Glob. I did smoke a JR Alternate maduro Macanudo wannabe cigar. JR Cigars has big tobacco companies make cigars for them. This particular one was made in I think Honduras, in the same factory that makes Macanudos and Partagas. The cigar store where I bought them had bundles of 20 five dollars off. So, the cigar cost roughly a buck and a half. For a buck fifty, it was worth every penny. Draw was a little tight, but flavor was good. It was peppery which paired well with the 18 year old Famous Grouse scotch I was washing it down with.
CARROLLTON – Coffee. It’s Sunday morning after all.
CARROLLTON – Last night we had company: Robert and Celia, Nathan and Tiff and Evie, and Leon and Theresa. Nathan and Tiff brought over a brisket which we finished up on the grill, and Robert and Celia brought steaks and corn. Leon made mashed potatoes and I cooked everything. We had fun. Oh, and James Hall came over as well. We talked, smoked cigars, drank fine spirits, and were in fine spirits.
I am glad to have a job, and glad to be able to have friends and family. I have a lot to be thankful for.
