    When I got my first meer the guy at the store told me all about not handling it without gloves until it started to color and all sorts of blah, blah, blah and yadda, yadda, yadda... (most of what he said went in one ear and out the other as I was more interested in smoking that pipe than anything else). And I wore gloves for quite some time as mine didn't color very fast. When I first joined a pipe smoking forum I learned from some of the more experienced meerschaum smokers that it really didn't seem to matter how you handled it unless maybe you wax your meers often, I never wax mine and I smoke 'em like any other pipe with one exception... my meers rarely, if ever, leave the house. If they do get too hot I will hold them by the stem just in case, but for the most part I smoke 'em like any other pipe.
    How'd I get in here?
