The D problem

Yesterday someone at the lawn and garden store had read that a methamphetamine lab had been found in an old farm house in the adjoining county, and he asked me a rhetorical question, "Why didn't we have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?"

It just so happened that I had saved something that had been sent to me a few weeks ago, so I said, "I have a drug problem from when I was a kid growing up in Putnam County." I printed off a copy and took it to him the next day. I smiled when I handed it to him.

Here's what the sheet said:

I had a drug problem when I was young: I was drug to church on Sunday mornings. I was drug to church for weddings and funerals. I was drug to family reunions and community socials no matter what "I druther" be doing. I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults and teachers. I was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents or if I didn't put forth my best effort in everything that was asked of me.

I was drug out to pull weeds in mom's garden and flower beds, mow the lawn, pick up my clothes, help clean house, and keep myself clean. Those drugs are still in my veins, and today they affect my behavior in everything I do, say, and think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack or heroin, and if today's children had this kind of drug problem, America would be a better place today!
