I don't look like I'm on drugs even when I am on drugs

You know, I've been asked by random people on the street if I could sell them stuff quite a few times. I never really understood why...

The funny thing is, I was in such a state of rebellion, I didn't experiment with drugs in school. Many kids I went to school with smoked pot so to be unlike them, I stubbornly resisted it.


Funny...I also tend to stubbornly refuse to do things because others do them...

But my reasons for smoking pot in High School were different. Everybody thought I was very naive, and told me so all the time. I guess people also thought I was "straight laced" (which I wasn´t!) because I was so naive, literal -(i.e., I didn´t "get" things, and therefore wasn´t "cool")- socially immature, etc. My brother was into pot at the time, and when he offered me some, I guess I wanted to smoke it to prove to myself, more than anything, that I wasn´t the way people seemed to think I was. However, being a pot smoker didn´t change my image one iota! And aside from making me feel mellow, I didn´t really notice much effect from it anyway. (People say you notice more effects when you do it regularly, but that didn´t make a difference).

Oh, and people used to treat me like they thought I was asexual. Sometimes, if they spoke about sex, they would apologize to ME 8O, or warn me not to be offended. I wasn´t asexual or offended by sex, just naive and literal....oh well....sigh

Wow, that sounds like a nice Christmas, as well as a great town! I live and Germany, so here Christmas is actually celebrated the evening of the 24th. I´m American, but- "when in Rome..." haha. Yes, I had a dinner at my place, 2 friends came over...I cooked most of the time!- (I like to cook, and I also enjoy setting things up, decorating the apartment, etc). After, we also watched a lot of dvds...it was fun. Christmas day here is a time when I RELAX, go on the computer, etc.

I wish you, Millie- as well as everyone else- a Merry Christmas!! :rendeer:
Or, as I like to think of it, good cheer in the midwinter celebrations (for those of us where it is midwinter), enjoy the Winter Solstice time!
