My old friend Buddy who is forever reminding me that life isn’t over yet and I couldn’t be more thankful for her.
Buddy is entirely the 1 who invited me to go with her on a trip to the cannabis dispensary.
I had tried smoking recreational marijuana when I was in college however it wasn’t all that great. That wasn’t a result of the poor quality of the cannabis products as much as it was a result of me partying. Each time I tried to smoke marijuana when I was in college, I was already pretty drunk so I just ended up sleeping on several couches. So I wasn’t so sure that trying recreational marijuana again was going to be that awesome an idea. My partner passed away a few years ago after a immense heart attack at work. Ben was less than numerous years from retiring. While I have been now working to reclaim my heart from that grief, his passing also reminds me of just how fragile and precious this life is. That’s why I’m so thankful that my dear buddy keeps pushing me toward living a happier life. Buddy and I went to the local cannabis spot together and it was a revelation. Buddy talked to the staff who put together a bit of a sample pack for us with sativa, indica and hybrid strains. But the young person also suggested that we go around the corner to the new cannabis cafe and try 1 of their yummy edibles. So we took our cannabis products and moved around the corner to a quiet side street where the cutest cannabis cafe sat. Since we particularly weren’t sure what to share, we chose to go with a pot brownie. And we just nibbled as we were instructed, because we were both still rookies at the cannabis thing. Honestly, it was the best day I’ve had since Ben died.
