Bombing your brothers
Bombing, you say?
Yes, bombing. Of the cigar variety.
We've all shared a few sticks with friends from our personal humidors. The digital age has simply updated this concept. The idea is to mail cigars to a friend you've made online, at a herf - wherever - with no expectation of receiving anything in return. It is an extraordinarily selfless act of kindness, unique to cigar smokers, that is invariably appreciated.
I will tell you this much: there's nothing like opening the mailbox after a rough day at work to find, nestled amongst your bills, a 5-pack of smokes you've never tried before. The realization that someone, from some distant place, took time out of his day to select, pack, and ship cigars is, in a word, humbling. Free cigars notwithstanding, it is its own special reward.
To everyone who has ever seen fit to obliterate my mailbox (you know who you are) - Thank you. To all my past, present & future targets - You're welcome. It was my pleasure.
