One particular evening after a delicious meal that my father made for the family, my mother went out on the back porch for her cocktail in the evening… As usual, she made herself a drink and told us to leave her alone for half an hour.
Per her request, all of us didn’t bother her for that length of time.
This happens to be her routine every evening, so all of us were not shocked by the request. Earlier that day, my sibling and his girlfriend had been on the back porch enjoying a little cannabis while the sun was going down. Knowing my father was making a massive meal for my birthday, they wanted to be extremely hungry for it. Well, when my mother went outside for her little nightcap, she was not shocked to see that they had left a bit of a mess on the handrail where they were talking about their current grow room… My sibling and his girlfriend happen to own a massive cannabis farm on the West Coast and have truly started a successful career. My mother thought it would be hilarious to take the leftovers and stick it in the same pot as the basil plant my Dad had been growing to cook with. A couple of weeks later, a little pot plant started to sprout. My mother seriously enjoyed it! She told all the people that she was the original pot farmer in the household and that she deserves some recognition. Of course, it was all great fun and all of us laugh about it all the time every holiday.
