Realizing it was only about 11pm, I told her, "Maybe it is your lucky night. The night is not over yet!"
To which she replied. "No it's not. I'm trying to score some blow."
I was really shocked by her response and I just told her that I couldn't help her. I think I was feeling a little deflated because I was feeling happy and optimistic and wanted to spread some of that to her. But if she needs drugs to have a good time, no amount of being positive is going to make her happy. So I felt kind of helpless to do anything for her. It's my job (career wise anyway) to make women feel better, and here was one I couldn't have any influence on at all. And that took me from happy to kind of contemplative.
As I left the bathroom I thought, "blow" is so 1986. I didn't know there were even people left that still did it. Especially not young people like her. I thought all the addicts these days were on meth or pot, because they're so much cheaper than other drugs and are always being talked about. I guess that goes to show how out of touch I am with the current drug culture.
