Weed Central.

Just a real quick few ramblings

I have heard that Colorado Springs is known for its rampant use of Marijuana (especially at Colorado College). Thus, after last night’s experience, I think I had my first encounter with Springs’ expansixe “high” population.

Last night, Jesse and I were in downtown Colorado, Springs and we visited this privately owned used-CD music store. First off, when we walked in, the sweet stringent smell of incense overwhelmed us (perhaps to cover up another sweet stringent smell if you know what I am talking about). Secondly, as we walked down the aisle there was a large selection of Bongs and other miscellaneous hobby items (porn videos, amongst other things). Needless to say, Jesse and I were not aware the environment before we walked in and were rather readily encouraged to leave. Jesse bought “Starsky and Hutch” on DVD and we were going up to the counter to purchase it, I noticed their large collection of incense and incense holders. I was curious to know how much the holders cost so I asked the nearest employee how much they were and she replied, “$2.50.” I remarked, “well thanks, I was just wanting to price them.” She responded back in this hazy voiced glazed over look, “Yeah man, totally, right on. COOOOL!” I know my descriptions do not do this story justice, but her inebriated reply made the trip into the store worth it.

NOTE: I like incense purely for the scent and I find them enjoyable when it is able to overwhelm the stale stink of a 20 year old’ dorm room. I do not enjoy or use incense in order to cover up other recreational respiratory activities….cough, cough, cough.

Also, one quick idea for your day that I apparently thought of but forgot. Thanks to Mike K, my memory is refreshed. If you can, spend about 15 minutes trying to do exactly opposite of what our conscience tells us to do. I find that our perverted self-will counteracts the spirit’s will. So, really, and I know this is rather generalized reductionist thinking, do the opposite of what your nature would normally do, and I think within this battle, we become a little more like Jesus.
