Selling faucets and powder room fixtures for a living is not exactly a thrill-ride, then it’s a good task, to be sure! The spend money is decent, I have full medical and dental benefits, and the schedule never swings, but on the other hand, there has never been one interesting day at work, it’s consistently exactly the same.
To break the boredom, I consistently jump at the chance to attend the giant national fixture industry trade show.
This year it was held in Philadelphia, which was exciting for me because it’s a locale I have consistently wanted to see firsthand. Philadelphia is so rich in history, I was eager to attend this trade show… just so I could blow off most of it and tour the town instead. There are few locales in America with as rich and important a history as Philadelphia, household to many patriots and birthplace to a revolution! With that in mind, I was stoked to also find out that cannabis is legal in Philadelphia. I even found a historically themed cannabis dispensary that played up the political history of Philly. There was a mural on the outside of the cannabis shop depicting some of the greatest figures in Philadelphia’s history. It was a beat combination of fact and fiction, because some of these Philly icons were shown smoking cannabis. It was cool to see Ben Franklin ripping a large toke from a cannabis bong, but I’m not sure it’s historically accurate or representative of Philadelphia’s past. I still took a selfie in front of the mural, just because it looked cool.
