Photo of The Day
Is this a good photo? Sure it is, but even more importantly it triggered an immediate flashback for me of the first time I took acid. I'm not condoning the use of drugs by any means, but when you are sixteen and only have a skateboard and walkman (tape not cd) to your name the idea of "hearing colors" is pretty appealing.
So as it were I was sitting in the Felicita parking lot waiting for the two tabs to kick in. They hadn't done anything as far as I could tell so I walked to 7/11 to get myself a Slurpee.
I walked out of the store and BOOOMMMMMMMM! Peaking at full bore. Passers by saw a kid staring into the eternal depths of his Slurpee believing (at the time of course) that somewhere in that frozen slush of Coke with a dash of Cherry (like there is a better combo?) was the key to life.
Spoiler alert. There was no "answer" to life's eternal question I was just a stupid 16 year old with a head full of acid who was about an hour away from being grounded.
Grounded on acid. Those were the days.
