4/20, or "That Holiday"
If you don't know about 4/20, I'll steer you to a rather "weasel-word" free article at Wikipedia.
This is a quickie from my Aimee files:
Once, while working as a WRAP social worker at Free State High School, Aimee spoke with an intoxicated student in her office on April 20th. The kid's rationale for showing up to school drunk rather stoned (as one who would celebrate 4/20 might be expected to celebrate)?
"I was afraid I'd get in trouble for being high at school."
Right. Good thinking kid. Drunk was a much better choice.
She proceeded to vomit in the middle of Aimee's office.
We had some laughs about that one. Big, hearty laughs.
