Too much work for such a simple thing. The process involved of making it, lighting it up, smoking it, and showing the people around you that it's "working", arrghh. Too much work. And i'm sure you must be raising your eyebrow and your mouse pointer's already hovering around the "X" to close this page, but wait. Before I lose you, let me explain myself.
I'm a novice, and the seasoned ones would argue that I have no idea what i'm talking about. But don't we need stuff for us beginners too? Like a manual of some sort, or initial training. You guys expect us to stand around with you, watch you roll it, wait for our turn - and get down to it like we own the joint in our hands, and we know exactly what we're doing.
There are just so many terms for the same act of smoking up. WHY?
Why?? Isn't that one term cool enough? Or is that term so overused that we need to keep coming up with newer ones? Not only does the act itself has so many phrases, but even the objects used to "get us there" have different references.
"Give me a puff", "Do you have a joint?", "Ayye Sutta de na" and so many more.
Now what's my point to all of this talk? Nothing. Does there always have to be a point? Maybe NOW the ones who want to make better use of their time have clicked that bloody "X" on the upper right corner, closing the page and have gone back to Mark Zuckerberg's creation known as "Facebook". You know what? Let them leave. They'll only go back to their freakin' wall and admire the number of likes for that brilliant selfie which turned out so good only because they know what's the best angle to click from.
I'm sure you know what i'm talking about. Because we've all been there too.
So for those of you who are still here, "Hey what's up".
Back to the whole "give me my puff part". So I am a novice, and I am in no position to say how amazing or how useless it us, but I have tried it. And I still don't get the point of it. It gives me a headache, and it makes my throat hurt. But I'm always about following protocol and ensuring that others follow what I follow too.
So to help out the interns, I've come up with a list of rules that are silently followed by almost everyone at every random house party I've been to.
Rules of engagement:
1. Must be done in a circle: Whether you realize it or not, all your friends gather around in a circle, so that one joint is easily accessible by anyone.
2. The joint is passed around: Even if there are 5 to 8 people who usually smoke 15 cigarettes a day, there's just a single joint that's passed around and by the time it reaches you, it's that stub which you shouldn't even be smoking, but you do it anyway.
3. When you take a puff, everyone in the circle look away: they won't ever stare at you doing it (unless you tell them it's your "first time") but the moment you start coughing (if, that is) a few will give you advise starting with "I've been watching you the entire time, you not doing it right; you aren't taking it through your nose." Like they hold a certification for smoking up.
4. Either have slow rock, or no music at all: Anything else will be looked down upon, mocked, criticized, loathed and judged. I've been there. It does happen.
5. Guys with long hair and beards are suddenly taken way more seriously within that circle. Whatever they say is godly, period.
6. They all agree that the most awesome person alive today is: Batman.
It wouldn't ever be taken too well if my family read this, but I strongly encourage everyone to try it once in their life. Not smoking up in particular; but find a way of being accepted in that circle. Or at least think that way to feel awesome for that one evening.
