“I’m sorry, but… you’re not a mess,” I said, sort of lying. He sat up and took out another bottle of Gatorade and took a sip before he got out a baggie of pot from the glove compartment and started to roll a joint as I nervously stared at him. He lit it and asked me if I wanted a hit and I have to admit that since I never tried it before, I was tempted, even if I knew better.
