Okay, so this is not a post about something that brought me joy, but it was a learning experience for my then-five-year-old daughter. We were walking along a narrow trail in a park, turned a sharp corner and came upon a group of three adults doing drugs. There was a guy with a tourniquet on his upper arm who was slapping the table, yelling out in your standard stupid, meth-ragged voice, "It burns, it burns!" The woman shooting him up said, "Don't be such a pussy." The other woman who was sitting nearby just watched with dead eyes.
My daughter and I had our first talk about what dangers lurk with drug abuse. I don't mean to go all Mr. Mackey here ("Drugs are bad!"), but after having spent 13 years in law enforcement, I know that certain drugs (meth in particular) are hell on the body.
Anyway, MV, you've got a cutie there. Enjoy her childhood and protect it!
