We recently ran a contest on our Facebook page to get some funny cigar stories from our fans. We got some great laughs out of all of them, but in the end we had to choose one. For overall absurdity (and hand-rolled cigar goodness!) here is our pick:
“About two years ago my wife and I were visiting her family in Puerto Rico and decided to spend the day in Old San Juan, which was about an hour and a half away. One of her many sisters decided to go with us. At about 10:00am we were in a plaza and I Imitazioni orologi italia noticed there were two gentlemen rolling cigars under a tent. I went over to meet and talk cigars with them. Turns out one of them, a torcedor, owned a tobacco farm in PR. He offered me a freshly rolled cigar and it was full bodied and quite good. They were surprised that a gringo could speak fluent Spanish with them. My wife and sister found me and said they were going shopping while I stayed with my two new friends. The owner asked if I would like to go with him to visit his farm and I said I would. I asked the other gentlemen if when my wife came looking for me to tell her I would meet her back at the tent at 4:00pm. We ended up staying at the farm until about 5:30pm. When my wife came looking for me at the tent, the gentleman who had been there had left and another was in his place. He had no idea what my wife was talking about. My wife panicked and alerted local law enforcement that I had been missing since that morning. I returned to the plaza around 6:00, my wife and sister were there giving a statement to the police. When she saw me she got so pissed and embarrassed having called them. I thought it was funny and started laughing. She literally didn’t speak to me for two days. She thinks it’s funny now but she didn’t at the time.”
Congratulations Jack Davis, you win a free smoke for letting us have a laugh at your story!
