“So, I went to visit a friend at UC Santa Cruz last week,” a student of UD’s told her this afternoon.
UD was so tempted to say that cliché thing about Santa Cruz -- “Oh? Did you cavort in a meadow and smoke dope?” - that she practically had to slap her hand over her mouth.
“It was amazing,” her student went on. “It was a celebration of 420. You don’t know what 420 is? It’s a hemp fest. Last week was Santa Cruz‘s annual hemp fest. Everybody cavorts in a meadow and smokes dope. I took some pictures. I’ll forward one to you.”
