Occasionally, temptations come our way, and we just can’t say no. They say that curiosity killed the cat, but sometimes it just hurts its feelings. On Tuesday, an overly-curious dad in Omaha couldn’t resist four chocolatey brownies that sat in the backseat of his car. Backseat brownies. Would you eat them? However, they weren’t your average Betty Crocker treats. Dad learned what it’s like to eat too many pot brownies, and he didn’t like it. In fact, you could say they turned him into a real animal.
On Tuesday, Omaha police officers received a call about an accidental overdose around 9:45 p.m. from a house near 90th and Maple Streets. While responding, they learned that a 53-year-old man found some brownies in the backseat of his car while unloading the groceries.
Earlier that day, his children borrowed the same car. As it turns out, the kids left something special behind. Not only did he try a brownie, but he ate all four of them.
The wife of the man told police that while she and her husband were watching TV, he claimed that he was starting to get bad anxiety. Without delay, she tried to call the children to find out what exactly was in the brownies, but could not get an answer.
Apparently, those kids have a super cool mom, because she refused to give officers the names of her children for fear that they’d be in trouble.
However, while the police were at the house, one of the couple’s children showed up and put his sibling on blast. That’s right; he told the officers that the brownies belonged to his siblings. In fact, he even told them that he was pretty sure it was just pot in the brownies, according to the police report. Totally not cool, man.
Eventually, the paramedics arrived at the scene to check the man’s vital signs. Though the vital signs appeared normal, the officers noted that the man was behaving rather strangely. The dad was not only crawling around the floor, but he was also spewing out random curse words. He even called the family cat a bitch.
The 53-year-old told the paramedics that he felt like he’s tripping. But when they offered to take him to the hospital, he declined. However, he did allow them to assist him to his bedroom so that he could go to sleep. The man and his wife were told to call 911 if he started feeling any worse.
Ultimately, I think dad learned more than one lesson here. First, don’t eat random brownies that you find in the backseat of your car. Second, go easy on the edibles. Edibles can take 30 minutes to 2 hours to kick in, depending on your metabolism.
Above all, I hope dad apologized to the cat and learned not to be such a jerk next time he wants to overindulge on special brownies.
