Not sure if there is one here, but having to drink a rum & coke without lime is a horrible fate...

Coming to the end of a bowl of a great tobacco.

Id say not being able to tell folks about a new pipe site at a dying pipe site is a first world problem if ever there was .. lol

Have to go to work tomorrow and make more than enough money to feed my family after having four days off, and I'd rather not. If that ain't a first world problem, what is?

There must really be genetic borne traits ingrained in us from our ancestral past because I really feel guilty about feeling that way.

All of my problems are first world problems and I am very, very grateful for that.

I take nothing for granted. Doing so would be the road to Perdition, which is a street in New Orleans, in Spanish: Perdido. New Orleans City Hall is at 1300 Perdido Street. The only more fitting address would be 1313. I have to go to City Hall tomorrow to take care of some paperwork. Fortunately, the office I have to visit isn't in Suite 666.

I was on vacation all last week and had to come back to work this week; (which I obviously dodn't want to do). I think that constitutes a first world problem.

Being able to taste test whiskeys in a nice air conditioned home and afterword having a great meal followed up with a cigar and some E&J XO brandy.
I agree with WK. From the circumstances that I came from as a child and to be where my family and I are now. I take nothing for granted.
