Well tonight I cracked out the old pipe and smoked it and it was nice to just relax and chill and think about this forgotten reality. Back in the day of my forefather (aka pops) when he was in college used to smoke the old pipe with his buddies all the time. Pipe smoking is a pastime long forgotten however just as meaningful and tasteful as back then.
Pipe smoking also makes you look much more scholarly because many of the great thinkers and writers smoked a pipe(not to mention hobbits and wizards.) This along with the fantastic smell that blows forth makes a great way to spend time after dinner while reading a book, studying, or talking to a friend.
