I’m surprised that my dad is such a prude, because he grew up in the 60s and 70s.
When my dad was a young guy, he listened to rock and roll music and he partied with his friends.
He protested the war and he went to political rallies. My dad was very outspoken about his beliefs then and now. Surprisingly, my dad doesn’t think that marijuana should be legalized for recreational use. We live in a state where marijuana is legal for recreational use and my dad has a ton of problems with that law. I like being able to use recreational pot. Until last weekend, my dad did not know that I used marijuana at all. I know how he feels about it, so marijuana never comes up in our conversation. My dad showed up at my apartment last weekend and I was hanging out with a couple of my friends. I opened the front door expecting to see my girlfriend and not my dad. I had a joint in my hand and my entire apartment was filled with marijuana smoke. My dad’s eyes got really big and he had a huge disappointing look on his face. I honestly didn’t know what to say to my dad. I certainly didn’t want to tell him a lie, especially since I am 21 years old. I just stood there with a dumb look on my face. I hope this won’t ruin our relationship. I know my dad has strong feelings about smoking pot, but I want to live my own life and follow my own rules.
