I was at a friend's house yesterday. Let's call her Ms. A. Ms. B was also there, and we were sitting at the dining room table, having either two-way or three-way conversations. Ms. A was constantly getting up and leaving the room to do certain things, then coming back, then leaving, coming back, etc.<br><br><br><br>
She came back in and sat down with a loosleaf-binder notebook, on top of which was a self-rolled cigarette.<br><br><br><br>
"I'm going to smoke a joint," she announced.<br><br><br><br>
This resulted in various giggling. And an inquiry from me as to why she had made that announcement. "Now I can't tell the police that I thought you were just smoking some home-grown tobacco mixed with some cinnamon or something," I joked.<br><br><br><br>
Next, Ms. A teased me by saying, "Oh, I'll bet <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Joe Shedlock</span> has never smoked pot!" Said as though I were too prudish or priggish to have ever done such a thing.<br><br><br><br>
I told her that I had smoked pot a little years ago when I was in school. But because I am not a tobacco smoker, it gave me a sore throat. And the "buzz" was not that great, at least not in my experience. So I didn't smoke it after leaving school.<br><br><br><br>
Ms. B. chimed in that she too had smoked pot in the past.<br><br><br><br>
I guess I left puzzled by why she made that verbal announcement. Was it to allow me or Ms. B to leave if we did not want to be connected with an "illegal" activity? Or leave the room if we were "bothered" by smoke?<br><br><br><br>
I was also puzzled by why she thought I was such a "goody two-shoes."

also, it may have been a kind of passive/indirect invitation to join her. believe me, when a potsmoker hears another potsmoker say, "i'm going to smoke a joint", they usually chime in with something like, "oh boy!" or "gonna share?" or "don't bogart that spliff, baby!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
having never met you, i can't really comment on why she may have thought you are a goody two shoes. do you look like a narc? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I always wondered about a former lady I worked with, our "l.o.", the one that used to bring her kid to work at night and lock him in the bathroom. I always felt bad for the 4 yr old boy. He sat in the bathroom all night while his Mom was supposing to be working. I'f Mike and I didn't find her sleeping her car, she was out smoking, and for all I know "doing" the security guard named Bernie. I think she was smoking something stronger than cigs...her eyes were always bugging out and drank water and tea obsessively(like 2 gallons in an 8 hour shift). THat was a strange lady indeed.<br><br><br><br>
Mike, didn't we dump something in her work locker one night,,,,food or coffee??

I'm more puzzled by why anyone thinks they are being all that bad by smoking pot anyway.<br><br><br><br>
I've tried it once or twice and I was never enthralled with it, so that was the end of that story. But I never saw it as some cliff-hanging, bombs exploding, orgasmic speeding car-chase act of rebellion.<br><br><br><br>
It just seemed like a boring way to spend an afternoon, to me.

I wouldn't whip out a bong/joint in front of possibly mixed company. I wouldn't do that in front of people unless I knew they were comfortable with it, or maybe not unless I thought they would join me. What's the fun in doing it alone? To me, part of its charm is its social ritual. I find it to be a real bonding experience. I have some positive opinions about it, but I don't do it right now.<br><br><br><br>
The person probably teased you Joe, bc it highlighted her contrasting "rebelliousness" thereby adding to her thrill.

Every third person I meet lately is smoking dope, it's no big deal. It makes the kids giggle a lot, it loosens some people up for sex and like booze, gives them an excuse to have fun. If you want to meditate it'll be a different experience. I used to like it when I was a teenager. Now it would send me to sleep. I think Ms A was teasing you- does she fancy you? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:">

Sounds strange. But I agree, Ms A may have been teasing you because she fancies you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:">

I've had some great brownies and some that were just crap. Ironically, the best ones, I think, are mushroom brownies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

bah. I can't imagine ANYTHING making those taste good. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:"><br><br><br><br>
But I thought brownies were all about chocolatey-brown hash? (Never had 'em myself)

Ha, ha! I really don't know. I think she is very attractive, but this makes it very hard for me to judge objectively what her feelings toward me might be. You know, wishful thinking and all that. I know very little about her personal life. Whenever I see her, she is always surrounded by other people, so there is little or no opportunity to talk about more personal things.<br><br><br><br>
She is a very important person in the veg*n community in Nashville, and is supportive of continuing EarthSave here. She has been helping us find a place to meet. I will continue to need her help and support. So I really don't want to risk alienating her by possibly misinterpreting what may simply be "friendly" gestures on her part.<br><br><br><br>
I have many reasons to be in contact with her, so I am sure I will get to know her better gradually as time goes on. And if there is a personal interest there, it might be appropriate to pursue it once I get to know more about her.

I got offered some weed this weekend - I didn't partake. Just never been my thing, y'know?<br><br><br><br>
I like my alchohol (probably a little too much), but the other stuff seems like bad news.<br><br><br><br>
I did smoke a pack of Camels this weekend. (possibly more - reports vary.)

i'd say she was doing it for attention, or yeah to look badassed. like "ooooooh look at me, i'm smoking up, i'm soooo bad, ooooh"<br><br><br><br>
if someone announced that to me i honestly would have said "ok" and then continued on with whatever conversation i'd been having with Ms. B
