For the first time in a long time i woke up and no sun was streaming through my windows. Normally i have to stay on the right side of my bed after about 5 am, lest the hot sun hit me in the face as it rises. But today, the skies were grey -- kind of like the entire winter in the Northwest.
It's one of those days that makes you want to do absolutely nothing except wear a snuggie (OK i really don't have one) and curl up on the couch watching old Downton Abbey episodes, maybe smoking a fat one. Yes, since the people in my great state of Oregon have recently legalized "that weed," there's now no legal harm in doing so.
But alas, here i don't think the rain is going to last. If it does though, everyone will use it as an excuse to not go to work, to skip school, or to generally hide at home. Even though Nicaragua has a rainy season that's months long, no one has quite figured out how to deal with it yet. But alas, i live on a paved street and not on a sinking mudhole of an avenue in the barrio.
No one tends to think that weed is an addiction -- but it can be for some. Luckily for me, there's really no temptation in that department here in this country, but for those of you who do have that option, check out this How to Stop Smoking Weed program to get a handle on that prolonged habit.
