My mom expected me to move back home after I graduated from the University of Colorado in Denver.
It was always my plan until I met my girlfriend.
I had a lot of hard things to say to my mom. She wasn’t happy that I decided to stay in Denver and she was even unhappier about my choice to be with a woman instead of a man. Eventually my mom. Over all of her worries and fears. She came to visit me and my girlfriend in Denver last month. It was the first time that my mom ever rode an airplane. She really wanted to see me and I was busy with work and could not get away. My girlfriend called my mom and personally invited her to join us and stay in our apartment for a couple of days. My girlfriend was absolutely and totally hospitable. She waited on my mom hand and foot and did everything in her power to get my mom to like her. It worked, because my mom left at the end of the trip feeling like she had a second daughter. My mom surprised me when she came to Denver. She wanted to visit a lot of different places and one of those places was a cannabis dispensary. I didn’t even think my mom knew much about cannabis. It turns out that I knew very little about my mom and I learned some of those things while she was visiting. We went to a recreational cannabis shop and my mom bought some marijuana joints and a vape pen.
