“I do! I do! I have a light! Hold on, hold on, hold on, don’t leave, let me get it out!”
I’ve always wanted to be one of those guys who sees somebody pop a cigar in their mouth, and you’re right there with a light. That’s such a baller move, and I’ve always wanted to be that guy. But I don’t smoke, so I’ve never bothered to carry a lighter.
I’ve had a cool-looking Zippo lighter on my Christmas list for about 6 years now, and finally, this year, my Mom got it for me. So now, I’ve been carrying it around, hoping for that moment to present itself. This weekend, I was hanging out with some friends, and a couple of the ladies started putting on coats in the middle of the party, and my instincts kicked in. This is it. This is my moment!
I wandered outside with them, and I saw the pack come out. Because I was ready for it, I knew right where the lighter was in my pocket, and I dove for it. Unfortunately, I haven’t put in the reps with the thing, so I can’t do it smooth yet. I still have to look at it to figure out how it opens, and I still have to use both hands, and I don’t know how you cup it so the flame stands steady. So I have some practice to do… but I felt so baller. It was everything I hoped it would be.
