So I went to yoga yesterday and it was my day to clean the studio, and as I was dutifully cleaning, one of my favorite instructors came up to me and said, "I have a personal question that you can't get weird about!" So I said, "Ok..." And he asked me, "Do you ever smoke marijuana?"
Doing my best not to laugh, I told him no, and he goes, "Oh, I just thought...with the dyed hair, and the yoga..."
....ARE THESE COMMON TRAITS OF A POTHEAD?? I guess so. He is still a very cool dude in my book, the experience made me laugh more than anything else. He was looking for someone to hang out with after class was the reason he was asking. It always surprises me (and it should probably stop, I've seen so much of it) the amount of yoga instructors who are also substance users of various sorts. It's weird, seeing as how I do nothing stronger than sugar, how these people that teach us how to take such good care of our bodies leave class saying, "I just want to go home and drink!" (A direct quote from the instructor that taught class yesterday.)
WHATEVER. I don't care what they do on their personal time, because for the most part they are all really good teachers!
