Have a Cigar

I was so jubilant with his return that I didn’t notice the cigar at first. It stood taller than he did. He flashed his toothy grin and said, “Congratulations”

“Whatever for?”

“I understand that it’s customary to smoke one of these on such occasions.”

He passed it to me. He then produced another from a place best left unmentioned and lit it. He inhaled deeply and blew a smoke ring towards the ceiling.

“I have some good news for you.”

“What do you mean?”

“You’re a father.”

“What!?”

“Many times over as a matter of fact.”

Son of a bitch.
