This is an article about the all important Ash-Tray. I am not speaking of Shawn Wayans character in, Don’t be a Menace while drinking your Juice in the Hood either… Message! I am a jay, a joint smoker and there are important elements of the ash tray needing to be discussed.
I try to let go of the small shit. I do y’all. However, my lady consistently does shit I do not understand. There is ash tray etiquette when you are smoking with someone. Especially someone you profess to love, correct?
So, if I have rolled a jay. Usually, I even ask what strain she wants to hit. See I am demonstrating concern and care with action. So I roll the jay, hit it and pass it to my lady. I have done my part…
So why does she consistently pass the jay back to me with the mouthpiece, with the part we put in our mouth on upside down in the ashtray. The mouthpiece is consistently passed back to me covered in ashes. Then she wants to look at me like I am an asshole when I remind her as lovingly as I can that these little grooves in the ashtray are so I don’t have to get ashes in my mouth every time you hit the jay!
I got side tracked. I’m just expressing my trauma y’all. I think she does this shit on purpose to truly fuck with me, but this was supposed to be about buying a new ash tray. The one’s I have with the groove are plastic and I have seen research that the heat from the joint will cause fumes to leach over time. There are also ash-trays that can keep smoke as well as fan smoke away so I am looking to step our ashtray game up a level.
Wow! I just went down a wormhole of ash-trays. Pizza slice ash-tray, recycled skateboard wheel ashtray, gun barrel ashtray, bowl cleaner and packer ashtray… Yes, I found some of the fan-sucking ones as well. I am just going with a couple of glass ashtrays with the side grooves and gently remind my lady to please Mother Fucking use the damn grooves… Please, baby!
