Jack and I were roommates in college.
After we finished our senior year, I moved to Portland to work at a tech firm and Jack stayed in Seattle.
We continue to talk on the phone a few times each month. When Jack had a couple of days off work, he decided to come visit me in Portland. We took in all of the sites while Jack was visiting. I had not gone to a bunch of tourist attractions and it was fun to see those things with my best friend. We went to the Columbia River Gorge and waterfall. We took a half day hiking tour. That morning we smoked a lot of recreational marijuana before we went on the hike. I didn’t know what to expect and I wanted to be well medicated before we left. Portland has a ton of recreational marijuana dispensaries. It wasn’t difficult to find something that helped with my anxiety. The day after we took the hiking tour, we decided to go on a dinner cruise. The two-and-a-half-hour dinner cruise strolled up and down the river while we were able to look at the sights and lights of downtown Portland. The dinner and the cruise was delicious and very flavorful. We had fresh salmon that was caught that day and a variety of chocolate desserts that were absolutely delicious. At the end of the week, I didn’t want Jack to go home. It didn’t take long for me to realize that I was probably falling in love with my best friend. That was an interesting conversation the day before he returned back home.
