He held up the can of Monster. In a voice that was somehow both raspy and squeaky, he asked me, "Have you ever seen one this big?" His question was clearly one of awe and wonder.
I didn't have an adequate response so I just flashed an awkward grin as the following thoughts raced through my cranium.
How do you follow up a question like that?
Yes, I have seen Monsters that big.
That's their standard size.
They make them bigger.
The kid is stoned.
He is higher than Snoop
What - in the name of all that is good and holy - did I just witness?
The moment my face was out of the kid's line of sight my half-smile was replaced with an expression of extreme stupification.
When did normal become big? And when was that cause to be amazed?
