My Repressed Mother

I had the funniest dream last that I just remembered. Well, to be fair, I did just wake up. Anyways, to summarize, I dreamed that my family and a bunch of extended family (the extended family was made up, i didn't recognize any of them except in-dream) took a trip to the "heartland" (I'm not sure what to call it... some dumb central state like Ohio or Iowa). We were going to some show, in addition to staying for a while and visiting. There was a baby involved that I was mothering, but that is a recurring theme in my dreams. And my mother, in total motherly fashion, was fretting about "Do we have enough food for everybody? What do we have left? What about the weed? Is there enough left for everyone for the show or did we use it all already? Oh, I wouldn't even know where to get more out here..."

It made total sense, while I was asleep.

Weed and dumb central States. Love it.

It is clear that you were completely inspired after reading my blog on Saturday night. And don't worry. It's just as plentiful here as in other states. ;)

Weed? Enough for everyone? WHAT?

And, c'mon...I grew up in one of the "dumb central states"! And now I live in another one of them! But secretly...I might agree with you about the "dumb" part. At least, for alot of parts of these central states. People are weird here. To be honest, though, I can't say much for the northeast coasters...definitely odd.
