NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION (OR SMOKING HASH IN AN OAKLAND HOTEL ROOM)

Folder: 
CHOKE THE CHICKEN

 

So I’m just sitting in the hotel room in Oakland.  I just purchased some black hash at a concert in Berkeley.  I found myself digging through my duffel bags but I couldn’t find a bowl.


I want to smoke but I don’t have the appropriate tools or equipment.  This is always frustrating to find yourself in this situation.  But I have learned the wisdom of that age old adage:  Where there’s a will, there’s a way.  Well, it’s some such shit like that.


I have to think quick and improvise.  I summon my inner MacGyver for inspiration.  There’s always a solution.  I just have to find it.


And aha!  That little light bulb appears in my head.  I can use an empty beer can as the bowl.  I crush one side in to form a pouch.  I retrieve my trusty Swiss army knife and punch a couple small holes in the can.  I tape aluminum foil over the holes and poke pinholes in the foil.


Now I have my solution.  I have a bowl to use to smoke the hash.  So another age old adage is proven true:  Necessity is the mother of invention.
