Homeless in Vancouver: Usually this stuff goes in the other direction
Speaking of odd Christmas gifts, look what a friend of mine received in the mail from a relative in the United States.
It's a pair of Disney-brand earbuds, and some other bud: a joint, “thoughtfully” wrapped in a sort of splint to protect it from being folded, spindled, or mutilated as it made its journey through the snail-mail system.
I write “thoughtfully” parenthetically only because I’m told the relative in question is both a heavy drinker and suffering the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
The relative keeps sending the joints even though my friend doesn’t smoke the stuff. The earbuds, though, might come in handy, and the splinted joint will become a kind of family keepsake.
