Want Some Tax Advice? Have a Cigar!

Hayward Tenney faces down tax day with a fine cigarWhat’s that Ben Franklin quote about death and taxes? Oh yeah: “…in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”

Sure enough, even a 3-day reprieve didn’t stop Tax Day from getting here. Haven’t filed yet? I suggest you scramble to the accountant’s office or break out the calculator. Time is running short.

Whatever your political position, Tax Day serves to remind us that we don’t own everything we earn. This year stung even harder for me, since I owed my local taxing authority their ludicrous 1.5% cut of my livelihood.

But the good news is that it’s over!

The older I get, the more I realize that few occasions in life call for a good smoke like Tax Day. If there’s a sliver lining, it’s this: I’ll never be further away from Tax Day 2012 than I am today. Now THERE’S something to celebrate…Cue the cigars!

I’m still deciding on what to smoke, but for now, this Ashton ESG should help ease the pain nicely. What about you?

When he's not busy writing, editing, smoking cigars, or raising his many, many children, Hayward " "It's Lou, not Hayward" " Tenney spends his days combating confusion about his real name (it's Hayward, but please - call him " "Lou" ") and mourning the matrimonially-induced loss of his moustache (what's he gonna do with all that moustache wax he made?).
