I've learned a few things "the hard way" in my life, and one lesson came last night. So now, my amended list of The Things I Have Learned reads thusly:
46. Never offer a toast to the memory of "the supreme greatness and wisdom of William Tecumseh Sherman" in a South Carolina bar.
47. Never smoke a Cuban Pirámides that quickly.
You don't wanna know about 46. Trust me on 47.
