It's amazing to me how difficult it can be to avoid illegal substances.
Last night, the derby girls had a slumber party. It was a great time. Full of drinking and eating and the watching off Rollergirls. and drinking. And Pot.
EEK! Aside from my personal issues with the substance, something I try and keep to myself unless asked, I generally have jobs that prohibit this kind of activity. I am rather paranoid about being around it because it is not worth it to me to lose out on a job because of second hand smoke. In the situation I'm in now, I have hopes every day of having an interview and hopes that that interview will lead to a test and a job. Testing positive could ruin a lot of stuff for me.
So last night, as soon as the scent hit my nose, I removed myself to the living room. I might be wrong in my assumption, but I generally think that if I can't smell it, I'm not breathing it. The lady of the house overheard me talking to another girl who does not imbibe, and promised to remove themselves tot her room. I thanked her. I don't want to be a poop, I don't want to try and tell a person what they can and cannot do in their home. That's not my business.
This morning though, I smelled the familiar aroma. I tried to turn my head, I tried to breathe through my blanket as I was folding it. I did my best not to inhale. I finally cracked the door. I made sure I took a load out to my car right then. The man of the house was done by the time I returned.
I hope I was not obnoxious. I understand that it was nice for them to be able light up whenever, where ever because the kids were gone for the night. I hope they understood that I am not judging them for their lifestyle choice. I am a little confused as to why a person would refuse to smoke cigarettes in their house but not pot. Whatever, not my business. Not my house. I do keep smelling it though. I think it's stuck in my sinuses. I hope that doesn't mean it's detectable in my system. After all, I didn't inhale by choice. Somehow, I don't think a potential employer would care about that.
