Giggles erupted from the back seat. My radar went up.
I glanced in my rear view mirror and watched in amusement as four-year-old Kolby placed a small black cauldron on her head. The little black “pot-of gold” was intended to hold leprechaun bullion—a gift from pre-school on St. Patrick’s Day.
“Hey guys, look at me…I’m a POT-Head!” my little lamb exclaimed.
And the car exploded in raucous laughter. My teen and tween gave me THE LOOK while Kolby beamed at the great response to her joke.
“Shhhh…guys, I know it’s funny, but she’ll figure out that it will make people laugh and it will be part of her new shtick,” I warned my older kids who were wiping the drool off their laps in hysteria.
“So, bud, I asked my son, trying to change the subject, “How’s the whole drug thing going on at your school?”
My son smirked. “Mom the kids who want to do it are still finding ways to do it, despite the drug tests.”
“How do you get around that?” I asked.
“There are ways,” he said.
“Really, UMMMM, wow!” I muttered.
I Googled it later and yes this does exist. I used my work computer (at home) which I thought about later and regretted. Probably not a good idea to look up “how to pass a drug test” on the work computer.
So, I found out you can buy synthetic urine at smoke shops. They come in little pee bags.
It’s good to know that our youth is always one step ahead of the curve.
I thought carrying a flask into prom was bad. How would you like to walk around with a pee bag in your thong, under your mini-dress and heels?
So, my friends who are parents of teens, if you find a small pouch with something yellow in it, please don’t think it’s a drink and give it a whirl. It might be time for a discussion with your kid about the perils of weed and brain cell development in teenagers.
I also think it might be time for blood tests although that might open a whole new can of worms (or vampires?).
We pulled up to our house and jumped out the car. A group of neighbor kids and moms was standing in our yard.
I heard Kolby in the distance yelling as I unloaded the groceries out of the back of my SUV, “Hey guys, look at me! I’m a Pot Head!”
Yep…I knew that one was coming.
