If I had not asked the husband I would not have known that sometimes one needs a cigar cutter to cut the ends of a cigar before it can be smoked. I thought cigars come ready to be used like cigarette. Now I know I am wrong. Anyway, it pays to ask sometimes. He knows because he said a friend gave him a box of cigar once upon a time and he did smoke it. He has long ago given up that habit though, of which I am grateful. The money he does not spend on cigar anymore I can use to buy a signature brand purse, lol.
