Someone spiked my friends drink last night, and she is questioning everything. She doesn’t feel safe to go to work, thinks it’s her fault. Listen you motherfucker, don’t drug people. It’s sick and twisted and she did nothing to you
I was walking around my town, drinking a milkshake, when I saw a nearby gym suddenly turn Red. Because I have never given Team Valor an inch in their goddamn life, I immediately trekked my way over to ruin their success.
The gym was a train depot, and sitting on the bench outside was a dude my age. I had to pause next to him to throw away my empty milkshake, and while I was doing so he struck up a conversation with me. I guess my sweaty, no makeup face was attractive in the 90˚F weather.
Anyway, he asked me if I was playing Pokemon Go. I said yes, and we started talking about the game. I invited him to watch as I totally decimated the Red gym and claimed it for Team Mystic. We exchanged high-fives, and then he asked me if I wanted to smoke some weed.
“Uh, I have asthma,” I awkwardly said, which was true. I also just didn’t want to smoke weed at three in the afternoon with someone I didn’t know, even if we had just bonded over playing Pokemon Go. For some reason, I apologized for having asthma, because I’m an awkward peanut. “Yeah, it’s really lame, sorry.”
“No, no, asthma isn’t lame,” Random Dude (Whose name I never actually caught) quickly assured me, “it’s just a part of you, y’know? You don’t have to apologize for something you can’t control.”
After that… Strangely uplifting exchange we parted ways, and I walked home feeling oddly validated and more comfortable with my asthma. So yeah. Pokemon Go really does bring people together.
Things that should have been taught in highschool:
-How to properly and safley drive
-What the fuck taxes are and how to do them
-Drugs you should never think about touching
-How to design a hirable resume
-Why you should and how to vote, including how to read the ballot
-Basic psychology/sociology on how to read emotions and talk to people
-The gist of credit, debit, bank accounts, etc. and how to manage money
I’m really, really sad about Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death. He was a brilliant actor and probably an amazing person and i’m sad we won’t ever see him on screen after Mockingjay part 1 and 2.
But I am so mad it’s due to drugs. Why the fuck would you risk your life to get high for a few hours? I’ve never understood before I and never will. It’s ridiculous and stupid and it makes me want to punch people in the throat.
