Out of the Blue

We're celebrating here in the BlueTower, as today is our wedding anniversary. That's actually poetic license, as MrsBlue is coming home from Pennsylvania later today, but we do have a dinner reservation tonight. It is quite a schlep home for her, though, so we're leaving open the option of switching our night out to the weekend if it suits us. Something about the occasion struck me just this week. We originally planned on getting married on the 20th, which was somewhat random, but we had to push it back a week due to a conflict with another wedding. Had our plan stayed unchanged, we would have gotten married on 4/20 before scooting off to Europe for a honeymoon that included time in Amsterdam. This was 21 years ago, so 4/20 wasn't even a thing back then, but I'm not sure anyone would have believed us that this was coincidence at this point. Probably doesn't help that our officiants were Cheech and Chong?

420 origin

I meant I don't recall the date 4/20 being considered to be relevant to 420 back then, either publicly, or in an underground way. I just may not be traveling in the right wrong circles. But I know for sure that I had never heard of the date being a stoner thing when we were considering a wedding date, or that aspect of it would have been discussed. We actually did have a concern that it was Hitler's birthday, so we were trying to be conscious of things like that.

anything that read "420" was considered related if you already knew what 420 meant

no it wasnt a national holiday like it is now, but people were definitely celebrating april 20 back then as well in numerous ways, as well as calling it out when seeing the time on the clock, a room in a motel, a number on a list, etc. etc. etc. you get the idea

but yeh the people i knew were certainly celebrating it back then, and honestly it wasnt that "privately"

did you ever deal drugs?? did you ever do actual crimes with actual criminals? the point is, yeh the social circle is the defining factor and i seriously doubt you knew "everyone", because nobody does

but the people i knew that smoked weed also did lots of other drugs as well, and they definitely knew about it and they definitely did crazy and often stupid shit on april 20
