I forget things a lot. But my first medical marijuana establishment? Nope, that's unforgettable.
Ed: The Gambills ate at Beau Jo’s in Idaho Springs today.
Me: You are totally stalking them through Foursquare!
Ed: I told them I was gonna.
Me: Where’s Idaho Springs?
Ed: Remember where we turned off to drive up to Mt. Evans?
Me: Three years ago. In Colorado. No, I don’t remember where we turned off to drive up to Mt. Evans.
Ed: Do you remember going up Mt. Evans?
Me: Yeah. Where we stood on top of the mountain and tried to get a cell signal.
Ed: No, where we stood on top of the mountain and tried to get oxygen.
Me: That too. Yes.
Ed: Okay. The little town where we turned off before we went up the mountain, that was Idaho Springs.
Ed: You really don’t remember? There was the old church way up on top of the hill, and then we went over the scary little dirt road called Oh My God Road*.
Me: Yes, I remember the scary little Oh My God Road.
Ed: And before that, we stopped in Idaho Springs. We got gas there.
Me: Oh! Was it across the street from the medical marijuana place?
Me: Okay, yeah, I remember Idaho Springs.
*Oh My God Road is a real road between Idaho Springs and Central City, CO. It is dirt, it is steep, it is twisty, and it is completely, utterly, pee-your-pants terrifying. These photos do not do it justice.
