In my 20s my Goshas were fun and I was really broke. So they were always a little bit more of interest. [MUSIC] Me and my friend we went to Jamaica. We had $100. That's all we had. She took 40 of our $100 and bought some weed. And I was like, now we have $60. Then she meets some guy, then she's like, they're taking us out to dinner, and she ordered some real expensive stuff, and then they split the bill. We have $20. So we met this girl, and she's like, no, I have all-inclusive, and I was like, you do? Okay, so then we'll have a drink. So then the next thing, we went to the beach. We started saying we were her. Cuz she wasn't going to be charged, cuz she's all inclusive. And then they go, well where's your card? And then we would be like, did you leave the card in the room again? And then we wanted to go to the grill, and the bass was $10. And we sat on the bus, and they were like, ladies, where are your tickets? And my friend said we gave them. To the guy. And she said what does the guy look like. And she said Jamaican. So we gave the man $10. So we had $10 left. Right before we're leaving, she goes [NOISE] I've got all this weed on me. We've gotta smoke it now. I don't smoke weed. That day I did. Get to the airport, the last ten dollars she wanted to buy some [BLEEP] Jamaican rum. And I remember waking up in New York. The man next to me, I was just on his lap My face is just. I think the reader put me to sleep. Anyway, I wouldn't do that today. [BLANK_AUDIO]
