So, working as a land surveyor, there are times when I am tasked with operating a sledge hammer for weeks setting monuments on large projects. I decided this would be the perfect time to learn myself how to enjoy my pipe while laboring as the salt of the earth common man. So day in and day out I've rammed my MM washington with full flakes of Wessex Red Virginia, grabbed a dozen steel rods, and a 10 lb sledge, fired the pipe up and got to it. What I've learned about clutching: 1. When you start drooling all over yourself, plug the end of your pipe with your tongue, close your mouth and swallow. 2. when you are out of breath, plug the end of your pipe with your tongue, and pant with your mouth open. 3. when swinging a sledge hammer and smoking a pipe, SEE #2. No fun breathing in a huge hit of smoke mid swing, cause you gotta land that hammer! Yours Truly, John Henry.
