Herfin'

Happy New Year to all.  I've only posted a couple items in the past so I'm pretty much a newbie....a newbie with a question.

Every now and then I come across a referrence to "herfing".  I have yet to come across a clear definition of the word, though.  How does one "herf"?  If you're "herfing", what are you doing?  You'd think after a year of trying out new cigars and learning about the cigar culture that I'd know by now what the heck it means, but I can only guess that it has to do with smoking.  But what?

I know there's a bunch of you folks out there who can enlighten me, and I'd appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,

Marty

    Welcome, Marty.

    The first rule of herfing is: you do not talk about herfing.

    The second rule of herfing is...

    Oh, okay. A herf is just an in-person get together to smoke good cigars.

    Ah, so.  See, I knew someone out there had an answer for me.  Thanks muchly. 

    The answer, tho, leads me to another question.  Somewhere out there I remember seeing an article having to do with a "herfidor"....or is my memory playing tricks on me?

    In my mind, one can herf at a herf...an event and action verb

    I wouldn't mind heffin' either, but not sure I want to be a heffer.

    Better than being the heffee.

    A herfador is a travel humidor. The kind of a thing you might carry several cigars in to a herf. If I'm not mistaken, Herf-A-Dor is actually a brand of same.

    Herfin at a Herf is cool, and Heffin at a herf is also cool. And its safe to go heffin at hef's herf because hef doesnt herf with heffers. Not to say heffers cant herf at a herf, heffers just cant herf at hefs herf.

    I was thinking along those lines as I read the thread but you definitely took it to the next level. Well done my friend, well done.
