Well it happens to everyone at some point I suppose.
I just never feel like I absolutely pictured myself in our fifties.
In fact, it is periodically hard to understand the guy in the mirror with all the gray. He sure has the same face and body, mostly, however the gray beard and hair are a bit sudden at times. I sure hope I don’t go off and become one of those dudes who loses his hair. But, to each his own I suppose. One of the swings I am embracing includes recreational cannabis. I’m absolutely one of the few 50 somethings on the block that I know who never enjoyed recreational cannabis in their youth. Recreational pot use always seemed widespread in our generation. Plus, it was totally accepted as much as having a nice cocktail was. But, I know the fear of God was put into myself and others by our older folks so I steered clear of recreational marijuana. Thankfully, all that has now changed for the better. With the advent of legal weed, I am now able to use recreational cannabis each day without fear of any sort of repercussions. It was commanded by a friend of mine that I regularly play soccer with. I noted over the course of a few weeks that his game was so much more consistent every week. Plus the miserable outbursts that would pepper his activities was now conspicuously absent. I inquired as to whether he had found a great therapist or what was going on. I was stunned to learn that he had absolutely discovered legal weed was sold at the local weed store. After seeing what it did for him, I was all in. And I can tell you, I have been so honestly pleased with this addition to our life.
