Smokes is a concept I developed for the members of my Patreon community. It's based on a quote that is generally attributed to the writer Stephen King: "Sometimes a cigar is just a smoke, and a story is just a story." These are essentially stories for the simple joy of storytelling. It also served as a great space for me to practice the style of narrative storytelling I most enjoy. This episode was produced for my lifelong best friends, Nathan, on his 40th birthday. Little did I know when I made it that two short months later, tragically, Nathan would pass away. His death made this particular story all the more meaningful to me.
