So, someone smokes pot in the basement of my building at least 2 times a week. I am sure you are thinking, well Lindsey, how do you know what pot smells like? Allow me to explain.
Once upon a time, a long time ago, I rode the bus to school. I would walk 10 blocks to the bus station, where I would meet my fellow neighborhood comrades and we would share a very interesting journey with Jim the bus driver to school every day. Well, upon riding the bus my sophomore year, I noticed certain smells in the air. These weren't your average teenage smells like morning breath, non-deodorant users, forgot to take a shower for 3-days kind of smells..this was something new. It smelled like I was back at the horse stalls up on post, but with a little bit of chokey mixed in. That is when I discovered that there were a group of kids smoking pot in the back of the bus.
My first reaction was to report them to Jim the bus driver, but the rumor was that he was pot smoker too....and not only that, but the kids at the back of the bus were mean, and I didn't want to get beat up. So, amongst my tears...because apparently I reacted to the smoke, I stuck my head out the window for two weeks. I finally went next door to my neighbor and asked if she could give me a ride to school. The plan worked for a while, until we started picking up my neighbors' friend on the way to school, who also had a bad habit of smoking.
What a dilemma: going to school with welled up eyes and smelling that nasty pot smell, or going to school smelling like an ashtray oh, and also with bloodshot eyes, because I also have a reaction to ciggy smoke. Sorry for all of you that smoke, I am not trying to offend, this was just my experience.
Anywho, that is how I know what pot smells like.
So, I was driving down the road yesterday sucking on a blow-pop and I thought, I wonder how many people think this is a ciggy? Really, if the bulge of the blow-pop isn't showing in your cheek, it really does look like a ciggy. I mean, remember the whole, 'avoid the appearance of evil' religious talks I have told some of you about? I wonder if sucking on a lolly is included in that theory.
