Next to your bed, there's a cigar table with a special cigar ashtray, and your wife is reading a book on how to save the environment." Suddenly, he's into a fantasy. "I'm reading Tolstoy, in Russian, translating it as I go along." Just as suddenly, he's back in the moment. "Merel, she loves cigar smoke."
