I took two hits at 7:20 Saturday night, quickly after my sister and her two little girls came home. I started freaking out, it barely took 15 minutes and I could feeling coming on. I ran outside, and started calling my friend to come pick me up. I spent the next ten minutes walking up down the street slowly losing my touch with reality. Strange lights were appearing before me, and my panicked mood greatly increased. Finally my ride arrived.
Lord it was a crazy drive, especially when he went through the McDonalds drive through. It seemed to last an eternity as cars appeared and disappeared from my vision. As we pulled in I realized I was freezing; rushed inside his house and bundled up in a blanket. The tv was going in and out thanks to there shitty antenna and it was driving me crazy! I begged him to put something on, a movie anything. He grabbed a tape his dad recorded of a bunch random MTV music videos from 1991. The distorted VHS and its accompanying condensed music was perfect to trip my already sprawling consciences.
That’s when we walked to the tobacco store down the road. I probably would of been better to stay in my blanket nest but I couldn’t resist such a strange experience.
Oh lord it was hard to handle. I grabbed an Arizona fruit punch and placed it on the counter with a dollar. The guy kept asking me for a dime but I didn’t have one, and was freaking out trying to get help from my friend. It took forever but finally we were on our way back. I swear I watched myself walk down the sidewalk, and back into his house.
It had been two hours now since I started my trip and I felt very in control. And it was time for snl.
Oh man oh man, it was like the best episode ever. During the opening scene I couldn’t help but remark how much I loved how the background was forming a big blob in the corner of the screen. All the morphing faces of the actors and there hilariously distorted voices I was in a laughing fit. Then came one direction; there mumford and sons sound alike tunes turned out to be pretty cool for the tripping out mind. I cant lie I really enjoyed it.
Of course I spent the rest of night awake coming down and feeling the lsd hangover, but besides that and the initial freak out because of little girls… It was worth it, I’ll probably be turning on again.
get down and get down
