What a birthday present!
I just walked into my mountain condo with my great, great grandfather's humidor which was passed on to me by my father on my 40th birthday.
I just opened an '82 Margaux, my girlfriend is lighting up a Romeo No. 2 from Havana, and the sound of John Klemmer's sax from his 'Touch' CD is emanating from the speakers. The stage is set ... to go through the mail.
I notice a finely wrapped magazine from the back, and I'm wondering what it is...I flip it over, there gazing up at me is the debut issue of CIGAR AFICIONADO. Talk about the ultimate birthday present to close out the night. Well ... not quite the ultimate present to close out the night, but pretty close, Marvin.
I've been fortunate, Marvin, having girlfriends who enjoy a fine cigar. In fact, sometimes it becomes a little nerve-racking when you light one up and your girlfriend keeps taking it out of your hand. You always ask, "Do you want one of your own?" and invariably she will answer "No, I like taking puffs off of yours."
Everyone always asks me what it is about cigars, what I enjoy about them, and you know Marvin, you really can't explain it, only cigar smokers know. We are a fellowship who enjoy one of the most cosmic pleasures this planet has to offer, and now you have completed the cigar mystery with your magazine.
