Cigars come in so many brands, sizes, shapes, tastes, and colors, and such widely ranging prices, that it can be hard to get your head around them. In an effort to understand the variety better, Frank Robertson compares them to something more familiar. But, counterintuitively, that something is women.
What man thinks comparing something to women makes the compared thing easier to understand? I raise that as someone who is approaching his 46th anniversary with the same wife. That said, the article is amusing, perhaps especially because of the comparison. Here’s a great example:
Why is it assumed that Cubans are the best? Cuban cigars can be thought of as a Swedish runway model. You know what I’m talking about, the one that you could live 10,000 lifetimes and you would still never have a chance! Simply, people want what they can’t have. And if you’re ever “lucky” enough to get one, it’s not long until you realize she’s over priced and over hyped – in fact, she’s crazy! Don’t misunderstand me, there are some good ones out there, but generally speaking…go with what you can readily get. It’s often a better experience.
