I wandered downstairs to find Aunt Bernice standing in the living room, making a pan of scrambled eggs as she smoked a cannabis joint.
During the COVID pandemic I lost our task, plus soon after lost our apartment. At the time there was an order in place, so the building owner couldn’t evict me in the middle of a pandemic, but that didn’t last long. I needed somewhere to go, although I couldn’t afford to transport because I had no income! Thankfully our Great Aunt Bernice took me in, plus let me stay in the spare room over her garage. She was a life saver, but it turns out she was a lot more than that! My first evening in the new place I awoke around midnight because I smelled cannabis smoke in the air. I had previously smoked cannabis biweekly, but had to stop when I lost our task. After 2 weeks with no cannabis, I instantly came awake when the delicious aroma hit our nostrils. I wandered downstairs to find Aunt Bernice standing in the living room, making a pan of scrambled eggs as she smoked a cannabis joint. I sat down at the counter plus asked to partake, bernice said “in the eggs or the cannabis?” And I said yep to both! Bernice explained that she smoked cannabis every afternoon, but was trying to be sneaky with it in case I was a square. Bernice genuinely thought I was a square, meaning that I wasn’t cool with cannabis. I had to laugh at this, because I enjoyed cannabis, plus because the word “square” was hopelessly out of date! It turns out that even in the middle of a pandemic, Aunt Bernice had a steady supply of cannabis.
