I Almost Smoked A Joint


There are two things about me that everyone is aware of.  1) I'm not a smoker. 2) I have too much natural energy.

I am not on any medications. This is natural energy. I am always positive and jumping all over the place every day. This is just me. I am a happy-go-lucky person. But apparently, some people are turned off by it. I remember having a conversation with an old friend of mine, and he just couldn't believe it. He thought there was some sort of inner devil inside me. He just couldn't believe that someone like me is smiling all the time.

So he called a friend of his and decided to bring a few joints to the house. He said he was going to make smoke weed.

"Why?" I asked him.

"I'm going to make you calm down," he said. "You're too active. I can't handle being around something like that. Trust me, once you smoke this joint, you'll calm down."

The best friend came over and they forcefully put me on the bed. They know I'm not a smoker. So they were doing their best to make sure I smoked a joint. I tried to get them off of me, but it didn't work. They lit up a joint and aimed it towards my mouth. I couldn't believe I was being held against my will, and about to smoke a joint. It sounds like a comedic suspense novel when you think about it.

Seconds before almost putting it in my mouth, they decided not to go ahead with it. They all of a sudden remembered the possible side effect from smoking weed. For some people, they will be calm and everything. But for some people, they will be all over the place. The hyperactivity will double, sometimes triple the energy within. So they were scared that if I smoked a joint, I would turn into Spider-Man and be somehow crawling upside down on the ceiling. They didn't like being active as I am right now. So they didn't want to make it worse.

They let me go and continued on with their day. That's the closest I ever got to smoking a joint.
