Once, I was a pretentious stoner.

Laila was a mindless parrot. “It’s supposed to rain tomorrow,” she said as I walked in through the side door. This was the one piece of information she retained from the evening news. Before the end of the night, she would repeat it to me five more times. “Make sure to take an umbrella with …
