The date 4/20 is a special one for pot aficionados. It’s a counterculture holiday where people hook up to celebrate, toke up, and perhaps discuss the legalization of cannabis with the passion and dedication of rebels plotting a revolution.
It also happens to be Charmaine’s birthday. (Also Hitler’s, but who gives a fuck?)
Which means a pothead and I have something in common today—we are paying homage to the rock n’ roll of our lives, the thing that keeps us high and mighty and sane in this sad mad road trip called life.
Unfortunately, Charmaine and I will spend most of 4/20 this year apart. She has to go to work and I to a couple of appointments. Perhaps later we can meet for dinner. If not, well, there’s TV and junk food and weekend. Cheap and simple, but a celebration nevertheless.
Here’s to a kick-ass 4/20 to all.
