#006 - hiding in the tub

There were only 2 times I bought weed - this is the first time.

There was a girl at school who had somehow found her dad's huge stash (trash bags!) and was coming to school and would sell a little bit here and there. She always shared quite a bit with all of us so we never seen much use for buying any.

Then one day Robyn said she was going to buy a bag - she had almost saved up the $15 that was necessary. She of course said she wouldn't be a free with her's as this girl was - WHAT?! Well she wasn't gonna say no to me! I'd just buy my own!

So after a couple weeks or some crafty begging - can't remember =)  I had my $15 too. So we told her and she brought it to school the next day. Wow did I feel like the biggest deal EVER! I just knew I was IT now -- I bought it that's hardcore, right? LOL!

That day when I went home after the ritual after school toke at Robyn's my mom was onto me or something. When I asked to back over to Robyn's she said no. WHAT??!! How was I supposed to smoke my stuff if I couldn't go over there?

So in my infinite teenage wisdom I thought I could fool her - I asked to go to Sally's house LOL!

Oh I thought I was soooooo smart! So I sat at Robyn's for about 2 hours, no big deal. Sure we smoked some of it -- honestly I think that stingy s**t smoked most of mine and none of hers!

Till my mom knocked on the door.


We about died! Cause Robyn & her mom lived in a very small one bedroom apartment with NO BACK DOOR!!

And.........we are high mind you! So we're fumbling and mumbling and not sure what to do!

Last second I think --- hey the tub, that's a good place! Why would she ever look there?? So I run and jump in the tub and pull the curtain closed.

It seemed like forever she was in the living room talking to Robyn about stupid stuff.

For awhile I wondered if Robyn was trying to scare me by keeping her there or what! She would just to mess with me LOL!

Then she was just about ready to leave and it happened.


She asked to go to the bathroom.


We both about gave in right there. I thought for sure Robyn had some how told her where I was and she was gonna jerk me up out of that tub and beat me to death!

I about couldn't do -- I just about caved.

You know what? She never had a clue! She did her business and left with NO clue!
The relief we both felt was so enormous it wasn't even funny! (well now it is LOL)
We told her years later and she said she ought to beat us both for playing her the fool. I think she was surprised that we were brave enough. Cause let me tell you -- that took LOTS!

irony of life

Oh the irony in my life in lately is just too canny! Let me explain.

We moved back "home" because we didn't like the fact that we didn't know anyone in Iowa Falls and wanted to be where we knew others so we could feel at home again. The "reunion" was bittersweet if you could even call it that! It's one thing to go to a store and see lots of people and yet not know one -- and quite another to go to a store and see MANY you know, yet few will acknowledge you.

And I'm not sure if it's irony or what you would call it but the twists life has thrown us lately on places to live  is weird. We went from living in a rough neighborhood to having two options to get out of there. What were the two options? The childhood home of one of the men who killed my father --or-- a home that is on the same street (diagonally across from) that my father was killed on. WTH??!!

And it's not like we had alot of choice had to pick one or the other -- the house we were staying in was in a REALLY rough place!

I don't know maybe it's just me because next year will be 25 years since my father died. Or maybe it's because next year will be when one of his killers will be getting out on parole. Maybe it's because I sort of reconnected with my half-sister? Could it just be late life grieving?

I don't know. I have just been really thinking about my dad alot this year. This fiasco didn't help matters none.

just. don't. know.
