You mentioned cologne being included in the recent package you shipped to us. I knew you had made a mistake somehow. Maybe because of the “spray of cigars” from Cuba that I selected. Good deal for only $13.13! But those are not lucky 13’s. I just checked and had a shock and a laugh.

Well, it’s really funny because normally I don’t open your packages to re-ship, but this one was odd-shaped and it was either unpack it or leave about 8-10 DVDs out of the shipment. Even after I unpacked it, I still thought it was cigars. But when I was filling out the customs form, it asked for the country of manufacture. I thought to myself, “oh, sh*t, they’re from Cuba and I’m sure that’s a no-no.” So that’s when I started looking closely at the package and realized it was cologne, which, by the way, was made in France. There is also a limit on perfume, so I may have underestimated the amount on the customs form……
I was glad to see that your next order of [real] cigars is made in USA.

Last week the package with the “super fragrant cigars” arrived. I was out of town so I went to the Nampost on Tuesday. They had told Barbara that we would need a Customs inspection. I waited for about twenty minutes for the Customs official to drive across town. We went in a little room and she started examining the paperwork. That’s when I took a wrong turn! Seeing she did not know what she was reading I said, “I don’t mind if you want to open the package.” BIG mistake. I thought that would set her mind at ease, but instead she examined every item. A Nampost clerk at the desk joined me in on-going eye-rolling, exchanging glances that said, “She is really doing this? LOL!” But, Yes she was and she even wanted me to open the sealed pack of Hanes briefs and the new pair of socks and the sealed “cigars.” She opened every DVD and kept saying they were ‘new’ while I protested that except for Cisco Kid 6 Classic Episodes they were all opened and USED…by me personally. Then she selected a few pieces of mail that I should open for her. I was very close to laughing in her face when I realized I was in a foreign country being “inspected” by someone who might think all light-skinned Americans shoot dark-skinned people on sight. After perusing an item from Woodbridge Association she looked me in the eye and said, “Your wife is there?” So close to laughing, I replied, “My wife is here with me; we live in Keetmanshoop. You think I would leave my wife?” Finally, she smiled. We taped up the box and she said after she completed the paperwork I could come and pick it up. So tomorrow I can retrieve the goodies. First, thing – after squirting more cologne all over me – I will watch The Cisco Kid!
P.S. So now I have egg on my face, but the GOOD NEWS is that the value and the reviews are excellent and I am looking forward to smelling up southern Namibia…with something more appealing than cigar smoke. Along with the reviews are Questions Answered. This is my favorite and you can guess why: What do they mean by “These are not real cigars”? What’s the difference between these and real cigars?
