the green fairy.

every once in a while, something new comes out on the market that i’m sad i will never have the chance to try. this beverage was around years and years ago and was in fact outlawed all over the world for nearly 100 years.

but as of yesterday, it has come back. oh, how i wish i could taste the elixer that delighted the tounges of so many all those years ago. perhaps it’s the mere intrigue of it all that has my mouth longing for the taste. or maybe my mind wants to wander while it hallucinates on some pretty colors.

but, as someone wise has said, “Look, absinthe is bad the way Jack Daniels is bad, the way Skyy Vodka is bad. The worst component is the alcohol. If you drink too much, something bad will happen.” and for me, i can ever have just a little.

    a friend of mine provided me with about 4 ounces of this stuff once. right before entering ye old happy hour bar, i boomed it down and then proceeded to dook off a half dozen Sierra Nevaders. i kn ow i shouldnt have, but dagnabbit, it tastes so good, you know, when it hits the lips!!!

    anyway, after two hours, my people said i couldnt talk at all, and all i could do to communicate was make this little clicking noises, like a chipmunk or that little bushman in Gods Must be Crazy.

    true story. and i have wanted MORE ever since.

    does that make me a wild animal??? wot?

    I’ve heard it contains opiates. I’ve known people who have drank it, and it has to have something else in it because NO ONE acts that way when they’re just drunk.
