“It’s 420,” Julie said to me at the pool.
After she had said it at least 15 times to all of us, I asked what it meant.
“It’s the number of the marijuana initiative,” she said.
“I have no idea what you are talking about,” I replied.
“It’s also the number the cops use to call in a marijuana problem.”
“So?” I said shrugging. “I was a failure as a pot head. One hit and I was sound asleep for the duration.”
I’m also a failure today as a drug addict as I had no idea what she was talking about. Even George didn’t have the faintest idea. Heartening.
