I just thought I’d mention that right now I’m smoking an Ashton VSG figurado. It’s an expensive cigar ($13!), but I got it courtesy of some friends who gave me a gift certificate to my regular cigar store, Red Lion Smoke Shop in Salem, Mass., for my birthday. Ah, the pleasures of working from home. And while it would be nice to be married with kids, at least I can console myself with this very nice cigar which I probably wouldn’t be having right now if I were married.
