And when you are at my in-laws house, that’s all there is.
So now, I know the secret to getting through Christmas week with my wife’s family. And the secret puzzle piece that was missing appears to be cannabis. Thankfully, now that recreational marijuana is legal, I will be toting cannabis products along with me to Christmas every year. I savor my wife so much. And out of that love, I have forced myself to endure Christmas at her Dad & dad’s for nearly a decade since we’ve been married, then my good friend and I do Thanksgiving at our location with my Dad & sisters however it’s alway a trudge up north for Christmas with the in-laws. I smoked some reefer when I was in my 20’s however I feel I was a bit too high energy for cannabis back then. I just wasn’t so much into the mellow & way more into the adrenaline. That’s changed a bit it seems. When recreational marijuana was legalized, I was curious so I stopped by the local cannabis spot for a look. I talked to the nice folks there & they put together a bit of trial assortment for me. I found that cannabis particularly sort of suits me now. While I’m still unquestionably active & into hiking, biking & even scaring myself sporadically, I like chilling a bit more now. And when you are at my in-laws house, that’s all there is. These people just kneel around & it goes on for a week. So this past Christmas I took many odd varieties of cannabis edibles with me for the trip, but oh man, did that make the whole scene so much more palatable for me. I was even entirely laughing at some of my father in-laws’s horrible, corny jokes.
