I hadn’t had a date in almost a year, and my friend thought it was the worse thing in the world. He was determined to find me a date, even if I didn’t want one. One night, I was out with the guys, and they dared me to get a tattoo. I had been smoking some marijuana and thought it would be cool to have a marijuana leaf on my back. Instead of a small tattoo, the marijuana leaf took up most of my back. I was ready to punch someone when I sobered up and realized how much my back hurt. My sister saw my tattoo and cracked up. She took a picture of the marijuana leaf and showed it to me. Two weeks later, my friend said he found someone for me. I wasn’t anxious about going on the date. When we showed, I almost laughed. The girl who was standing there was a budtender in the local cannabis dispensary. The guys told her what a great guy I was, but from the look on her face, she wasn’t so sure. She had seen me in the cannabis dispensary several times, and I wasn’t friendly. I told her I was picking up medical marijuana for my mom, but I don’t think she believed me. Later that evening, we were sitting in my car, and she asked if I would mind if she was bold. She asked if she could see my tattoo. She thought it was the funniest thing when she looked at the marijuana leaf on my back. She may not have liked me, but she loved my tattoo.
