Bong Hit Eric called in for the first time in months and said he'd recently lost a lot of money on the stock market ("It doesn't always work, you know. I did kind of take a hit there.") and has now gone back to work "opening pools and maintaining them through the summer."
Eric laughed that he was considering other options as well: "More or less I've got to figure out what I'm going to do when I grow up."
To that end, he's sobered up--slightly: "I'm still smoking but a little bit less."
