No really. I like UB's story. I'd like to hear just how he got into blending. You know he's famous for that. I'm not sure the newbs around here know of his success.
Also, did anyone ever throw up from smoking in the beginning their piping careers? I did. I smoked...of all things...1Q way too fast at a Christmas party. My buddy gifted me with an estate Kaywoodie straight Dublin, that I still have, and provided some 1Q to load it with. The ladies wouldn't "let" us smoke inside so we ventured outside where it was below freezing. I think that's why I smoked so fast. It was to get out of the cold. I think I was done with the whole bowl in around five minutes. The other guys were taking their time. I knew right away that I shouldn't have been so hasty. I politely excused myself and went straight to the nearest bathroom, which was right off the living room where all the ladies were. I'm sure they heard me heaving. I was as careful as I could be not to mess up the bathroom. To this day I'm not sure my buddies ever knew what happened. The ladies, I'm sure, did. They are nice ladies.
