Day #1 is in the books here in Washington State. The first full day of legal weed and same-sex marriages.
I couldn’t help but notice that everyone was still driving the speed limit, the lines at the fast-food joints weren’t any longer, and the straight folks here are still straight.
Could it be? Could it be that the gay community isn’t more gay than it already was? The bi-curious folks aren’t any more curious? My daughter hasn’t cut her hair short, stopped wearing makeup and started wearing flannel shirts and workboots? My son hasn’t quit his job running heavy equipment in favor of becoming a hairdresser?
I checked the news this morning and didn’t find any reports of a guy getting stoned and beating up his girlfriend.
Maybe the zombie apocalypse isn’t coming after all.
