A 13-year-old Girl Scout in San Francisco recently set up shop outside a marijuana clinic and sold 117 boxes of Girl Scout cookies within two hours. The cookies were such a big hit, she’s been invited back.
Smart ass girl, yes!!!!! Ultimate munchies to go with the bud
Know your market.

I was hoping to become one of those doctors that works in the emergency room. They’re always so understaffed..
Ah, that’s very true. The waiting times can be a little…excessive because of it.
this is your periodic reminder that old-timey medicines did not fuck around
Well, you were probably not going to cough anymore, so there’s that.
I’m majoring in Biology. I’m hoping to become a doctor one day~! [she grinned happily]
My, you must be a smart one, then. Which sort of doctor do you want to be?
Michonne wasn’t sure if the silence was a good thing or not as she followed Aaron off the porch and they began to make their way towards the shed. She couldn’t see or hear any walkers and the two they saw before they entered the house must be far away from them. Eve so, she kept a watchful eye on their surroundings just in case. The last thing they needed was a surprise.
Likewise, Aaron looks around as he walks across the open area, looking for signs of movement. Upon reaching the shed however, he leaves being the lookout to Michonne as he works the old door open and steps inside to look around. “There looks like there’s plenty of tools in here, at least.”
Oh, okay. [she took a left turn when it was time before continuing to talk] ..So then, are you a college student by any chance?
Oh no, I don’ have the time for it. I just happen to pass by the campus now and then when going around town. I’m assuming you are, though; what’re you majoring in?
No, I’m alright. I only got a knee-scrape, so I’m good.
That’s good to hear, then. Oh; I believe it’s a left turn up here.
Ah, yep, until the wheels locked and I tumbled head-first off the bike. [chuckles lightly]
Oh my! You weren’ hurt by that landing, were you?
Civil War Dominos & Playing Cards
Soldiers Playing Cards In Camp (Library of Congress)
During the war, soldiers enjoyed many idle hours in camp. Time was spent in repairing uniforms, writing letters, guard duty, fatigue duty, spiritual activities, and engaging in other pursuits, such as playing cards and dominos. It was common for soldiers to carry cards and dominos in their haversacks, knapsacks or pockets.
Playing cards of the period were plain, lacking numbers and markings on the face cards. Dominos were made of various materials including wood, bone and ivory.
Gambling and card playing were condemned by many chaplains on both sides as a violation of the Christian faith. Aided by families at home, chaplains and religious leaders tried to convince soldiers to end the practice. Some men took such persuasion to heart and divested themselves of their cards; others threw decks of cards away as they marched into battle, only to retrieve them later. Undoubtedly, many soldiers carried both playing cards and Bibles, a representation of the on-going battle in their minds between the sacred and secular worlds.
