Weekend Follies

Let me take you on a journey through time and space. Where mental barriers are crossed by middle aged liquor store employees. Impossibly attractive men give you jello shots out of syringes leaving you questioning: was he real? Will he come back? Was that a figment of my imagination induced by the insane combined total of alcohol consumption? A world in which someone can come up to you and say "Hey honkies. You guys wanna buy some heroin?"...well maybe not maybe it was closer to "Does anyone have a blunt." Strange memories held in a fog of hazy consciousness. Had it been months...years...But no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch the events that took place. Were there midgets? Was I a fashion designer? What happened? Where is the jello shot guy that dances to Macho Man (muscle arm muscle arm thrust pose muscle arm muscle arm thrust pose) on the edge of my mind?
Write this down.
I will impart upon you the vast knowledge I have come away with. There are too few nubs in world, breakfast in meant to have alcohol involved, it is quite easy to accidentally end up in East St. Louis, you should never quit anything before you are 40 and then it is a ten year process, I may put the "k" in class but you need someone who can put the ass in it, look there’s a dogwood, people lie when they want you to make a u-turn, and families everywhere have their own baggage that they are more than happy to share with complete strangers while they are secretly smoking with their cousins.
Again I leave you with a little fear and loathing "And that, I think, was the handle - -that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in St. Louis and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back."
