Flash Fiction #186

Conversation Thread

Bob didn’t object to Canada finally legalizing marijuana. Many of his friends had indulged in weed without legal approval for years. He didn’t, and couldn’t understand some of their justifications. “It improves your creative abilities, man.”

Once, he’d thought that his dreams contained epic ideas. A counsellor had taught him how to wake and write them down. The next morning’s notes had read


His friends’ 4:20 “creative” sessions reminded him of those attempts. Eight stoners, loudly holding forth on 13 subjects, all at once! 😯 There wasn’t a single coherent conversational thread to be grasped.

    Left me laughing. I’ve never used marijuana and have no intention of doing so, but people who have tell me it’s relaxing and allows your mind to float free. Not sure I’d want to let my mind float free. It already gets me into a lot of trouble 🙂

    I dunno, Man… I’m feeling Groovy myself… and I ain’t got no weed. Shoulda had me a toke before coming home…
    Peace out.

    Moment at the peak has gone. What remains thereafter is only a jumble of thoughts.
