Quit Talkin And Pass That!

Have you ever been in a cyph with someone who doesn't know how to shut the fuck up!?  You almost hate passing them the blunt because you know that they're gonna hit it and continue to tell their long ass story.  It can be frustrating when you're smoking with a chatter box but don't always be so opposed to it.  Having a good conversation over a blunt is nice every once in a while.

But don't get me wrong, I can't stand when I pass the blunt and you watch that person hit it and then look you in your face as they continue talking to you - forgetting that they have the blunt in their hand!  I find myself thinking more about the blunt; when are they gonna hit it again?  Pass it!  Holy shit, it's about to go out!  And then I come back to reality and feel bad for not really paying attention to what they were just saying.  When someone's telling you a story, it's not polite to interrupt, right?  It's also hard to find an appropriate time to interrupt.  By cutting someone off in the middle of their sentence, it could make them feel like you don't give a shit about what they're talking about.  It's never my intentions to make someone feel that way but I feel like I would enjoy the story if I could continue smoking while they tell it.

The best solution I've come up with to make someone let go of the blunt is to use hand signals.  It could be considered an interruption - especially if the person doesn't understand what your sign language means.  But if you're dealing with someone who knows that they have a habit of talking too much over a blunt, then I'm sure they would recognize any hand signal to mean Hey!  Keep smoking!  Pointing at the blunt is a simple way to remind someone to not let it go out - hit that shit and pass it back!  After all, you can't change people.  The best you can do is remind them.
