Ordinarily I don’t like going to trade shows. Taking an airplane, booking a hotel room, packing up my clothes… this is all too much work, and I don’t care to participate. However this year was different, and for once I was eager to book a flight and cross the country for a trade show about new models of toilets. I work in a store that sells bathroom fixtures and toilets, which is why I don’t like the trade shows. This one was being hosted in Denver, Colorado, the Mile High City, a place I have always wanted to visit. There are two main reasons I was excited about this trip. One of the reasons was the legendary cannabis crops on sale in the Denver area. There was a time when Denver was in the national news because of its cannabis dispensaries, and I have been curious to visit one ever since. The second reason I was eager to visit the city was because of the Denver Broncos. The Denver Broncos are without question my favorite football team of all time, and I wanted to walk around Empower Field even though it was the off season and I couldn’t see a game. As luck would have it, the Denver Broncos were holding an open practice that weekend, so I got to spend a few hours sitting in the stadium seats and watching the boys play. If I could have smoked some cannabis at the same time it would have been perfect, but that would have felt disrespectful to the athletes of the Denver Broncos.
