It smelled like weed in the airplane bathroom

My mom and I took an international flight when I was 12 years old.

I don’t remember exactly how long I was on the plane, but I remember going to sleep and I remember having a meal.

It felt like we were on the airplane for three days, but I think it was about 12 or 14 hours. My mom took me to see my grandparents. They were from the old country. The plane ride across the country and the Atlantic Ocean was nearly half of the trip. Most of the plane was filled with americans. I was seated next to another young kid who was about the same age as me. He was also visiting with relatives that lived in the same country. We talked about our lives and the places where we lived. The boy got up to use the bathroom when the seat light went off. He was gone for a long time. I decided to get up to check on my new friend. I knocked on the bathroom door a couple of times. He came out of the airline bathroom and gave me a weird and bizarre look. Then he smiled and winked. I went into the bathroom and the whole room smelled like marijuana. That was one of the first times that I ever smelled marijuana. I didn’t tell anyone about the smell of marijuana in the bathroom. I didn’t even say anything to my friend about the smell of marijuana and he didn’t say anything to me either. It’s been 35 years since my mom and I took that trip, and I will never forget the way that the airplane bathroom smelled after that kid was smoking marijuana.
