I have sunk to a new low. I keep a pint of Viaka vodka (a (I believe) local cheap vodka) on hand for pipe cleaning purposes. On Sundays the liquor stores are closed around here. Damn Kansas blue laws. So, I drank it. It tasted like a$$. It got the job done. I drank my pipe sweetener. Yep. I did it. I just felt the need to confess.
