Band of Brothers part 7
The man running the camera filming the interviews of the troops is smoking a pipe.
It sounded better when the voices in my head were saying it.

I didn't get a picture of the car or the pipe. Here's my samich.

The above post encapsulates American degeneration. Mr C is in a position where he is confronted by timeless style and grace and evidence of a personality. There is a touring car fitted with a luggage rack, suggesting that the car is actually used for touring purposes. He sees the owner of the car smoking a straight briar pipe, thus providing an entree to a brief moment of conversation by which Mr. C's life could have been enriched.

Instead, he takes a picture of his effing egg sandwich.
Ha! That is funny. But actually, we snapped a couple pics when our food came and then put the phones away. We chatted and enjoyed the car, old fashioned gentleman, and his pipe instead of grabbing our phones and taking more pics. So I don't really feel bad.

Heh. Can't see why you would feel bad. Quality time with an individual child doesn't come about very often. Course, I still don't know what was so mesmerizing about the sandwich. Did you at least instagram it?

There is another fella at work who smokes just about the entire Missouri Meerschaum product line. He has a shaved head and a waxed handlebar mustache. An old fashioned gent if every I saw one. The first time we saw each other was in the parking lot. I was in my car lighting my cob up for my drive home smoke and he was walking past with his cob in his teeth. We exchanged friendly nods and smiles.

You need a flying monkey at your side. I don't see them being offered as pets anytime soon though. WAAAAAAAAAY too much liability!

Passed a elder gentleman and his white-haired Missus sitting outside one of the local coffee shops, he smoking a larger bent pipe and her with her nose in the air seeming to catch the room note.

Saw a bearded chap, about my age, wearing a flat cap and smoking a straight billiard near Chinatown about a block from the train station today.

A good story? He was smoking some cherry aromatic? He was Methodist?

I don't know what he was smoking. I was on the other side of the street. I had no quarrel with him.

Odd that you should mention the damnable Methodists. The bastards are advertising on the sides of trains here. One such train had just rolled by before I saw the pipe smoker in question and I was holding forth to my wife about how we should drive those treasonous wretches out of the city. She zoned out, as she often does when I begin to hold forth.

Saw a man driving a blue jeep whilst smoking what looked to be either a prince or a Rhodesian as I was crossing an intersection near downtown.

It's good you have a friend. We could wish he wasn't imaginary, but still, it's good to have a friend.

He's actually not my friend. He just calls and texts me for some reason.
