SAD STORY \tPlease note that my real name can never be revealed and I shall not mention anyone else's names either. \tHere we have a â€˜family' with 5 persons, father and mother, two boys and one girl. The girl takes after her mother who takes after her family's non-tolerance of marijuana. The girl is out of the picture, but we'll first take a look at her. \tShe's really just a silly girl, but a grown up silly 21-year old. Her behaviour as a persistent girly-type daughter, puts her out of this discussion. \tThe father is the â€˜damage case' of the family. He is currently in his late forties, a short plump but serious looking man, sometimes accompanied by a fine voice. He is a marijuana-smoker and has been all his life. He attended one of the top secondary schools at his time, which is significant for a country-boy like himself. He was always a bright boy. Little is known abut his early manhood , except that he moved on to be a nurse at a hospital for the mentally challenged, and married a country-woman whom he met in the nurse's training college. \tHis history of marijuana use is a very traditional one, his family being of Indian origin dating a few decades away from their homeland. His usage been the cause of much dispute in the household, the arguments over the last few years basically cycle along with the times he got caught. \tThe main players of the arguments were, of course, the mother and father, their offspring having relatively no say in sometimes even their own lives. A very traditional country family who lived a city life. The male children both took after their father. The older boy (currently a University of the West Indies Bsc. and 20 years old.) took completely after his father including his temper and rough behavour. He was a quiet boy whence he grew up though, and discovered the world as we all do. (although some never do L) The other boy, the last child (currently 16 years and an advanced-level secondary student) is the person of note. \tA radical kid, he adopted the calmer side of his mother and the â€˜side' associated with his brother and father. This led him to be the star-child in his early childhood (because of his looks) and a ordinary type (a â€˜Stuck With Me' green day type) after he grew up. And in finally adopting the herb of his brother and father, he finally (really) grew up. \tBecause you see, he would sometimes be seen, and one might think he might be talking to himself, but he was not. This it was discovered, greatly worried his father. He told his son about it only a few times in his early childhood, but the boy knew the significance of such deeply-thought-out worry. He knew his father did not like seeing him in such a state, and therefore shunned the mood in his presence, or checked sometimes to make sure his father was not around, whenever he felt such a state. _________________________________________________________ So what's the point of this story? Well you figure it out. It's really great mental exercise. But I'll give you two hints for guidance: 1. Both father and son are SANE. 2. You know of the mental expansion that marijuana is supposed to bring, don't you? Well you know the voice that you hear when you under ganja, it's not someone inside you though you may perceive it is and â€˜talk' to different people you know by your thoughts. But it's all mental, that voice is yourself, YOUR MIND. Challenge the mind and see what thoughts you are capable of.. Well folks, I'll be back tomorrow or the day after (or both) to check responses. PLEASE RESPOND with your thoughts, the benefits of separate minds analysing such a seemingly insignificant yet important story is incalculable. I'll also get the thoughts of the 16 year old guy who figured out his story.
