...how much syrup

Post by Bloodhound » Wed Jun 14, 2017 2:48 pm

My son, who is a newby to pipe smoking, called me last night and said he wanted to smoke and talk...sounded good to me so I grabbed a pipe, he was excited and suggested that I smoke the blend he bought and shared with me 2 weeks ago. So I grabbed the bag, "Pop's Maple Rye" blend. Like needles in the tongue...I burned it good. I didn't tell him...but I did caution him to smoke it slowly.

Don't misunderstand...I like that he is trying it...I love that he is including me...but next time, since he is 300 miles away, I might just smoke one of my tobaccos and not mention it to him....is that wrong?

Are you saying that other people read this site? Does that mean that my wife has read this site?

Buy him a set of your faves, or samples from your Cellar and share 'em. When he says "let's enjoy a bowlful" mention you're already packed with one of the selections you shared.

Otherwise, he might remark about how His selected blend tastes, smells, looks, etc. Then you'll be caught flat-footed.

Next, you could see what it blends with to "take the bite out" - that's a potential save.

If anything, some folks don't respond well to certain blends. This is a worth-while anecdote to share with Him. No foul - no fault.

Invite him to join B. R. A. T. A. S. S. and share with him the list of approved tobaccos and pipes.

Saving your face from being bitten off by any tobaks and still remaining nonplussed is a skill. Not wrong one bit.

If he is new to pipe smoking, then he would likely appreciate a lesson on tongue bite.... and how to avoid it.

He called again last night and said he wasn't going to smoke for a couple of days...tongue burn. It was a great chance to share the wisdom offered here. He had some blends that I had given him and he had a pouch of PA that he bought. I told him PA doesn't bite and we smoked a bowl. Yup...I have a supply of PA in my cellar...We talked for a while. He said to tell you all thanks.
