Team Taco™ and friends!
Area man, 27, takes it easy. Not spending hours writing this week sounded nice for his brain. More at 11.
An Incomplete List of Things I Thought About When I Accidentally Got Way Too Stoned
- I really need to make another salsa.
- Pancho’s ears are so soft. What a guy.
- I can’t believe alcohol is legal but marijuana isn’t.
- I really want to get my mom stoned before she dies. I think she’d really love it. Just pop a little 2.5mg edible and… quilt. (Editor's note: I got my dad stoned for the first time at age 70 last week. He denied feeling anything. Then ate an entire bowl of Cheetos.)
- I can’t believe my parents finally moved away from Texas.
- And my dad’s new job! So proud of him. But. Like. This should be huge for me. They may be able to save enough for retirement, and I won’t have to be their safety net.
- Maybe. If I’m lucky. Wonder why I don’t feel more excited?
- Like, the dread of not being able to afford my parent’s elder care is the only reason I’m still working in tech. If I only had to take care of Alyse and I? Shit. I don’t even know where I’d work. Not here.
- Well. Maybe here. I really do love my current client list. They’re all doing dope things, and the stuff I’m doing is super fun.
- But the internet poisoned my goddamn brain. And getting off of it would be great. Oh god, then I'd get away from NFTs.
- I’m still sad Heath Ledger is dead. He’d be making buddy cop films with Ryan Reynolds and weird indie films.
- How many more times should I plug my cookbook pre-order? Like, every time, right?
- Selling shit is the worst. I know it’s the only way to make the thing exist. But Jesus Christ. The worst.
- I remember the laugh my college advisor let out when I told her I was going to be a writer. “That’s not what people use English degrees for. Let’s get you some Education classes. Teacher Daniel Agee. Nice ring to it."
- Should I send her a book? Both? Is that petty?
- Oh, we haven't talked about the second one yet. Whoops.
- That feels petty.
- I've eaten a liter of that new salsa since I made the recipe a week ago. That's a lot, right? (Editor's note: hey, I helped.)
- 10 Things I Hate About You aged super well, right?
- I gotta make like 2x their salary writing these words down and taglines for startups and apps. They work for the church school — there’s no way they’re not underpaying them. Just like they were underpaying my dad.
- The first time I got stoned, I was on a pig the size of a sedan. Like. Riding a pig. My girlfriend’s dad raised prize pigs for the fair. They were huge. We’d hide in the farmhouse talking on the pigs.
- I wonder how Lori is doing?
- She joined the army, right?
- I could eat.
- Really glad I broke that pattern of spending time on people who didn’t want to get better. Freeing, really. High school was not kind to me.
- I was not kind to high school. So. Basically even.
- I should eat.
- No, stop thinking about that.
- Just vibe, idiot.
- Oreos are incredible.
- I wish I could give Pancho some Oreo.
- Oh shit, we still haven't given him peanut butter yet. We gotta get Pancho some peanut butter. He's gonna lose his goddamn mind.
- I should stop eating Oreos.
- Do we have tonic?
- Certainly out of Oreos.
- I'm proud of you.
