Hey guys hope your well. So as we know, those of us who arent thick skinned and brave enough to use our fingers, have to have something to press down our tobacco when smoking. Normally we have the trusty tamper,pipe tool etc, but it always amazes,frustrates and annoys me that i always seem to mislay mine and im sure a lot of us have the same problem. Which means we have to find a replacement for the trusty tamper, which can result in a whole manner of things being used. a couple of my memorable ones are: a 7.62 bullet. (I know a few of you are probably thinking omg you idiot, but this bullet was inert so there was no risk of me blowing me face off, which come to think of it would of been trying to explain that one away in accident and emergency). a five pence piece pressed down with my finger and flicked out with a little bit of twig. an actual twig i hacked off a bush in my garden. one of my mothers lipsticks (which was met with very strong repercussions). a chap stick. the bottom of my pipe lighter. and the first time i tried pipe smoking i thought i would be clever and use my finger, which resulted in me recoiling back, losing my grip and dropping my pipe which ended up me juggling my pipe getting showered with hot embers, and making my t-shirt look like a sieve. So thats a few of my silly strange wierd and slightly dangerous improvisations for a missing tamper, do any of you have any other additions.
