I was smoking my pipe the other day in a public place. There was a young gentleman in fatigues standing a ways from me smoking a cigarette and didn't seem too friendly. So I light my pipe and he immediately comes over saying "Old School!" several times. He thought my smoking a pipe was really cool and would not leave my side until I went inside. Same type of thing happened about a year ago. I was sitting on my front porch enjoying a pipe when some young Jehovah witnesses came up in my yard and wanted to speak to me about their "literature". I'm always open to new thoughts and ideas so I invited them over. The young man seemed very serious until he saw my pipe then his eyes got real big and he go a huge smile on his face and said, "You're doing it old school, that is so cool!". The young lady I don't think cared.

The other thing I've been getting A LOT is, "Is that cherry you're smoking?". Or more boldly just telling me that it is cherry I am smoking. Thing is, I've never smoked a cherry tobacco in my life. Someone thought my Frog Morton was cherry! Huh?

One lady asked me if I could produce bubbles with my pipe.

Mostly though, it attracts the right people who just want to have a conversation and it usually works out. I used to get comments about how great the tobacco smelled but I don't get that so much even though I mostly smoke aromatics.

Well, just thought I'd share.

I had a woman walk up to me and tell me she loved the smell of my tobacco. after I thanked her she proceeded to tell me about someone in her family that smoked some cherry blend and that I should try a cherry blend. I explained to her that I prefer Virginia blends, but had tried a couple of cherry blends and didn't care for the taste. After expressing her feelings on cherry blends and the fact that I should smoke them about the 15th time, because she liked them, I told her she should buy a pipe and some cherry blend and smoke whatever she wanted.
Some times the folks that like our pastime are a pain. lol!

Skip, I get the "cool" thing alot for some reason. It might be because I'm the cool one making the pipe seem cool but I suspect it's the other way around.

Hhaha no one ever thought I had cherry. BUT, lots of poeple says it reminds them of their grandfather/ uncle (insert other older male relative) and how it makes them happy. One girls say it makes her day whenever she sees me smoking.

I wish I could smoke out in public more often, but it's usually so cold and windy here that no one's out walking around and it's not much fun anyway.
