Jerald had not been to New Mexico ever.
But, this was going to be one of the most memorable trips for him.
His sister got married and moved there a few years ago. They kept in touch but hadn’t seen each other in three years. Gerald missed her so much since they were so close growing up. Work and family commitments meant they could no longer spend time with each other like they used to. Their parents had been busy, so Jerald and his sister learned to rely on one another from a young age. They even went to the same university though Jerald graduated earlier than his baby sister. The flight to New Mexico was lovely, and he got to enjoy the comfy seats in business class. When he landed, his sister was waiting for him with the biggest sign ever. Jerald wanted to stay in a hotel, but his brother-in-law vetoed that fast. They drove to his sister’s house and found her kids waiting for him on the porch with their dad. Everyone was so happy, and there were even some tears. After settling in and having lunch, Jerald and his sister snuck out to explore Albuquerque a bit and even went to a marijuana dispensary to get some cannabis candies. Weed is legal in New Mexico, so it wasn’t hard to find these tasty treats they both liked. By the time they got back home, it was late, and they were quite high after a fun night out. Jerald and his sister fell asleep on the front porch, and her husband had to take both of them to bed.
