Going home is always heavy. Friends and family can really jack up their lives while you’re away.

I’ve found the majority of the hometown heaviness involves just three things:

Drugs, babies or marriage.

Sometimes it’s all three at once – as in the case of the WeatherHousemate’s friend who has an addiction to speed, a new baby, and a new wife who doesn’t know about the speed problem.

Sounds like a keeper to me.

Tuesday’s forecast: Soft drugs, condoms and a steadfast commitment to staying single. Amen.
