Boyfriend Did a Scary Thing

Boyfriend and I actually discussed this in our last podcast, here. But I wanted to tell this story in bloggy form, too.

The weekend before last, Boyfriend came over. We sat:


And drank

And Boyfriend did a thing he sometimes does that rhymes with boke beed.



Yes, Boyfriend occasionally smokes a little. Probably about once a week, max. And he’s been doing this for years. My point is, it was nothing new or out of the ordinary. But then a weird thing happened.



Boyfriend got really pale and dizzy and nauseous and felt like fainting. I reacted appropriately.








So I sat on the floor and googled being high and pale and nauseous.


According to the internet, that’s when you get really really pale and sick after smoking weed.


So I spent the night taking care of Boyfriend, giving him sips of water and trying to feed him sugar.



He got a bit better a few hours later. Apparently you can “pull a whitey” when you smoke way too much (especially if you drink before too). Like I said, Boyfriend’s been smoking forever and this is the first time this has ever happened. He felt mostly better the next day, but still had a headache and was a bit off.




Has anything like this ever happened to you?

  1. After hearing the story on your podcast and reading it here, I remembered a time I "pulled a whitey" (there has to be something racist about that term), but that was after imbibing some laced brownies. That was the only time I blacked out from weed. I had no idea there was a term for it. I could really use some weed now. Is this like when you read about food and suddenly get hungry? Maybe you should write about exercise next and I'll get in great shape.

  2. There is little quality control on illegal substances...this might be another good argument for legalizing the product.

  3. Maybe pesticide residue? Make sure he's obtaining organic weed from now on...

  4. The last time I boked beed, I accidentally joined the Navy. :-(

  5. As a hypothetical "brower" of top quality "beed" (hey, it's legal here) I've hypothetically had this happen before. That feeling like you're going to hurl is hypothetically the worst. It has nothing to do with quality control and everything to do with portion control. Especially if it's really strong, top quality "beed."

  6. I giggled a little too hard a Boyfriend and his weak sauciness. We'll give him a pass this time, but next time he's to send his beed to me.

  7. It's age!

    I don't know how old your bf is, but all my older smoker friends say they can smoke less and less as they get older. Even the people who are pretty hardcore about everything else in their lives.

    He's getting old!

  8. I can see why you needed to blog about this, even after talking about it. We all needed to see Nurse Gia!

  9. I can't stop laughing at "bork beed" and "pulled a whitey."

    This site is so educational!

  10. I don't think "pulled a whitey" is something I could get away with saying without someone accusing me of using racial slurs, but it's good to know the term. I learn something new every day.

  11. Oh my gosh, "pulled a whitey" is hilarious. Never heard of it, but glad I did today. I feel kind of cool and so in the know now. Thanks. I'll have to figure out a way to use it in a sentence during my next meeting in the office.

  12. When I boked beed, it always made me feel good, but I haven't done it in many years. Maybe it's time for Boyfriend to cut back on the beed, or Nurse Gia will be needed more often. Nurse Gia is awfully cute, though.

    Love,
    Janie

  13. Nope. Never had anything like that.

    Not that I can boke beed. My lungs are too bad for that.

  14. That is the ONLY thing that has ever happened to me when I tried "beed." I didn't realize there was a term for it, thanks! I thought I was allergic, but just like my dancing affliction, I'm just a big fat whitey.

  15. I tried to be "bad" but my lungs just Won't Allow. how pathetically boring good can you be that you cannot even inhale? but since I am also huge hurlaphobia - it's probably best anyway.

  16. It's been years since I was a boker, but I did it morning, noon and night. On the way to work, at lunchtime, on the way home, etc. This never happened to me. My son assures me that beed is not like it was "back in the day" and is much stronger. I have not tried to compare but maybe it will help my Fibromyalgia! Hmmm....Agreed that Nurse Gia is a cutie.

  17. LOL! I quit smoking that stupid junk after college. There come a point in life where it's just not cool to be a stoner anymore. Stick with booze!
