my parents shouldn't have let me happen


driving home, stoned, and alone.
these are the important things to remember.
that guy on 94, that guy in the yellow truck.
he was not looking at you.
you were driving fine.
you’re great.
second of all, you are not lonely.
if you were lonely, you’d be sad.
you’re not sad, you’ve got a smile on your face!
the third thing to remember when you’re driving home, stoned, and alone, at 3 in the morning.
it’s actually 3:26.
the fourth thing to remember when you’re driving home, stoned, and alone, at 3 in the morning,
you still live with your parents, do not knock on the door.
if you knock on the door, they’re going to think something’s wrong.
that you locked your keys in your car, or that you are too stoned to have been driving home.
and buddy, don’t worry, you are fine. you smoked that last blunt 6 hours ago.
you are not too stoned to be driving, you are the perfect amount of stoned.
but you’re still under the impression, that you’re too stoned to be driving.
and that makes me really concerned about the way that you approach the world.
and when you’re awake and stoned at three in the morning, you should actually be asleep, that’s what you should be doing right now.
don’t think about how you disappointed your friend by forgetting you made plans.
don’t think about how you ran over a raccoon, and probably killed it.
don’t think about that medical bill that is probably on its way to collections right now.
don’t think about how you are probably never going to overcome depression, and how it is going to be something you’ll deal with for the rest of your life.
you’re stoned and alone at three in the morning, and you’re in your car.
just go inside of your house, get into your bed, and go to sleep.
there is nothing good you can offer the world at this moment.
you do not need to be awake.
go to sleep.
the world will be there for you when you wake up.
and if it isn’t, don’t worry about it,
it’s not your fault.
