I like smoking pot and I was counting down the days until I could go to a recreational marijuana shop to buy legal weed.
My big brother and I were always very close. I was very sad and upset when he joined the military, because he wasn’t home much at all. He came back to the house before Thanksgiving and again at Christmas, but I didn’t didn’t see him for six months after that. The next time was a year in between our visits. My brother was 2000 miles away when I turned 21, but he surprised me on that day. He was standing outside of my apartment when I arrived. I was surprised and shocked and I didn’t know what to say. We shared a long hug in the doorway of my apartment. It might have been the first time that I cried really hard as a grown man. After we saw my mom and dad for dinner and drinks, my brother and I spent the night going to different bars and cannabis dispensaries. My dad was going to tag along until he found out that we plan to go to the cannabis dispensaries as well. I like smoking pot and I was counting down the days until I could go to a recreational marijuana shop to buy legal weed. My brother couldn’t smoke any cannabis, but he drank enough beers for the both of us. I was elated to share the experience with my big brother. I didn’t expect him to come home for my birthday and the surprise was something that I will never forget. Someday we’ll be old and grey and I will remind him about the greatest birthday of my life.
