I'm Mik. Model, mother, moron. Future meta-magician. Former logic clinician.
My better half and I own Brainfood Bookstore in Longmont, Colorado. It is the only exclusively indie- and local-lit bookstore in the nation. We meet a lot of crazy folks.
Testimonial from a former roommate:
"Living with you was like living with a quiet little opinionated deer person who floated around like a ghost and said smart/nutso things and ate seaweed. "
I love Colorado. I love mountains. I love hiking. I read and write. I raise my children to the best of my ability. I have lupus and have defeated early-stage cancer twice, so I pretty much fully support the use of medical marijuana.
lol. I NEVER smoke weed and have my children with me at the same time.
I have only been stoned and in my children’s presence once; I smoked outside while my boyfriend got them ready to go to the zoo, and then he drove. I was incredibly sick that day and my arthritis had made it nearly impossible to leave the house for about a week. Andddddd then I got to spend the day with my kids while my boyfriend basically babysat us. And no, I do not feel guilty for that. At all. If I was exposing my children to second-hand smoke, that would be a different story, but I’m not. I’m a good mother. I simply can’t help the situation (that I have to choose between crippling pain and being stoned), but I can balance being a responsible parent and being a parent who is physically capable of playing with her children every now and then.
