My girlfriend Max and I were separated for just over one year, thanks to the pandemic, travel restriction, and the great distance between us.
She lives on the other side of the country, so we usually only see each other once every month or two.
Once COVID hit, we knew it would be a very long time, but we were committed to one another and decided to ride it out. We did Zoom dates, online game nights, and constantly mailed each other care packages. I had to get creative for her, and be artsy and craftsy, but she lived upstairs from a cannabis dispensary, so that’s basically all she ever mailed me. I am by no means complaining, without those cannabis products coming in weekly I would have been dry months before. The first time I got one of the packages I was worried about getting busted for mailing cannabis across state lines, which used to be a big thing. Since she works at a cannabis dispensary she has the right paperwork to legally mail her products anywhere in the continental US. By comparison, the care packages I send her suck, because nothing really compares to a week’s worth of pot brownies, right? Long story short, now I live with her, we are united and happy and both live upstairs from that cannabis dispensary. The care packages are a thing of the past, but those wicked strong pot brownies are still in heavy rotation. I don’t smoke much pot any more, but edibles have become a daily thing for me.
