Out of the Humidor

Unfortunately, I didn't find any of the specific cigars at the local shop, but the guide helped me settle on coronas. Previous to reading your magazine, I didn't even know the names for different sizes.
Keep those issues coming!
I'm 20 years old and pay for school and cigars primarily through online poker. Anyhow, a couple of buddies and I went out to buy some cigars. After seeing the prices, a price-savvy first-time smoker in our group proudly declared that you can get five cigars for the price of one at a gas station down the road.
Not wanting to ruin his savings (we are in a recession after all) we did not argue. He proceeded to purchase some good ol' Dutch Masters. When we went to smoke later that night after a poker game, he began to cut his already precut 89 cent stick, light it with a Bic, and inhale all of that uniquely trademarked Dutch Masters smoke.
Moral of the story: thank you Cigar Aficionado for making me "not that guy."
