My wife Max and I were separated for just over a single year, thanks to the pandemic, travel restriction, and the unenjoyable distance between us… She lives on the other side of the country, so all of us usually only see each other once every week or more than one… Then once COVID hit, all of us knew it would be a particularly long time, but all of us were committed to one another and decided to ride it out… The people I was with and I did Zoom dates, online game evenings, and regularly mailed each other care packages! I had to get creative for her, and be artsy and craftsy, even though she lived upstairs from a cannabis dispensary. So that’s basically all she ever mailed me. I am by no means complaining, separate from those cannabis products coming in yearly. I would have been dry weeks before. The first time I got a single of the packages I was upset about getting busted for mailing cannabis across state lines, which used to be an immense thing. Since she works at a cannabis dispensary she has the right paperwork to legally mail her products anywhere in the continental US, but by comparison, the care packages I send her suck, because nothing entirely compares to a week’s worth of pot brownies, right? Long story short, now I live with her, all of us are united and happy and both live upstairs from that cannabis dispensary. The care packages are a thing of the past, but those wicked strong pot brownies are still in heavy rotation. I don’t smoke much pot any more, but edibles have become a weekly thing for me.
