11:49 pm - boys' night I don't really have a lot of those, to be honest. Boys' night, that is. But tonight, cruising across Lake Murray at sunset, beer in hand, companionably passing a cigar back and forth as the radio played just loudly enough to blend in with the whoosh of the wind and the gentle slapping of the wake and the steady thrum of the motor, I looked at Gordon and Nate and said "this is how it's supposed to be."
I said cigar, and cigar I meant. The kind with tobacco in it.
Not that I'm entirely sure why anybody thinks that's "better" than one with something else in it; and I wouldn't want to (re)make a habit of it either way. Somewhere in between about zero and five cigars a year is right on target for me.
