My Meeting With Tommy Chong - Reasons Not To Smoke That Much Marijuana

So today I was dragged down to the bookstore on behalf of my twin brother, by James' two friends. I don't usually have to be dragged to the bookstore, and they probably aren't used to dragging people. This was because Tommy Chong (of the infamous stoner duo Cheech and Chong) was doing a signing. Right now, Cheech is singing for the amazing reality TV singing spinoff, Celebrity Duets. This features some D-listers, and washed-up celebs trying to sing with desperate for money credible legends like Smokey Robinson, and crappy popsters, like that female country singer I can't remember the name of. And there's Little Richard too!!! Chong is signing his autobiography at independent bookstores in Calgary. That, kids is why you base your career around being young and smoking pot. You will be sure to go far.

So James' friend bought the 30$ book, probably'll help the old guy with his retirement. We walked up the stares, and the excitement brewed as we saw a pleasant looking old man with a slow voice, who could be anyones grandpa. Now we get in the two person line, and wait to get Chong to sign the book. Behind us are these punks who smell like pot and have dreads and leather jackets. We look like a couple of nervous teenagers. So Chong signs the book, he's very nice to us teenagers, asks us our names and is good when James' friend asks him to sign it for all of us. He can't spell the last three letters of my name, and he doesn't understand when I say I'm there on behalf of my brother cause he's at drumming. Oh well. He was very sweet though, and he didn't snipe at us like some adults do. I came out of the book store grinning, washed up celebrity encounters put a smile on my face. Hey, but I gotta give the man credit. He's not on a crappy D-list show, and he wrote a book about prison after spending years smoking pot. I'd rather him be my grandpa then a 65-year old version of one of those punks behind us.


What a couple of QT's.

Get it "retirement". XD I think you were a little harsh to Poor Tom (omg led zeppelin song). If I was there I woulda scolded you. Hey... You shoulda been like "James isn't here man". That would be sweet.

Sorry James.
I guess I didn't "rep" you as well as possible. I like the Led Zeppelin/Cheech and Chong references though.
Gives you credibility as a teenage boy.

Tommy Chong seems to be enjoying a renewed celebrity. I've been hearing him on CBC quite a lot lately it seems, which beats the hell out of a reality show!

Yeah, I was impressed with his book/cbc-ness. I always thought Chong was the more sensible of the two, him being Canadian an' all.
