continued from last week . . .

So there were five of us jammed into the backseat of an SUV on our way to a Cubs night game when the old man driving asked, "Do you guys smoke weed?" We were pretty cautious with our answer, but we didn't actually say no. Then one of our friends got brave and piped up, "I do." The old man said, "Well, do you want to get a buzz before the game?" and everyone's immediately like, "Yeah, totally." So the guy says to his elderly wife, "Get that joint out of your purse." They rolled up the windows, lit up, and passed it around--they pretty much baked the car. The next thing I knew we were in front of Wrigley Field. They dropped us off, and Grandma and Grandpa Hippie Woodstock went on their merry way. So, yes, we're happy for the White Sox and we're here celebrating. But it sure would be nice if Grandma and Grandpa Hippie Woodstock showed up tonight.
