Cigarettes are a one-night-stand. Cigars are a short-term acquaintance. Ahh, but a pipe is like a good marriage or close friendship. Pipes are not used once and thrown away. Pipes are not status symbols packaged with expensive wines and Armani suits – requisite accoutrements for models on the covers of fashion magazines. Pipes are, in the end, close confidants in times of confusion, consolers in times of loneliness or loss, and comrades with which to celebrate times of happiness and prosperity.
