I am a VaPer guy...but I'm slipping
This is how this sort of thing starts, at least for me. I have my
favorites, my standard fare for the pipe, and these in the same
Me? I have a sweet tooth. Not the vanilla-cherry-crunch type of
sweet. Virginia sweet. Or maybe if I'm feeling frisky, toss in a
little perique. 5100, Haddo's, Escudo, Dark Star, etc..
I fear I might be slipping though.
The way I typically develop a new taste is to have some sort of
cross-over attract my attention. I try it. I like it. I try some
more. Before I know it, I've moved from the cross-over fully into the
realm of the new category and find, much to my surprise, that all the
folks that have enjoyed that category all along aren't the crazy loons
I presumed them to be. (The first time I remember this happening was
with country music. Garth Brooks came along while I was in high
school. I liked him. Next thing you know I am two-stepping to George
Jones, Chris LeDoux, and the like...but I digress.)
The siren whose call I have recently taken notice of? Latakia of
course. Now I'm not fully into the latakia camp at this point. I'm
still in the cross-over section with leanings back into the Va realm.
But darned if that cross-over is not all I want to smoke. At this
point, I don't know if I will fully slip into the dark world of latakia
or not, but I feel myself slipping.
What is this evil blend that has attracted my attention so?
So you see my trouble. At this point though, I cannot help myself. I
made a new pipe for myself this week. This afternoon I will fire it
up. This pipe will become only my second pipe dedicated to latakia,
but I don't have a choice...
P.S. Hey folks...I've been lurking lately, but this danged Scandal has
pulled me from my hole. Hope all is well with everyone.
