So, i got like, 51 capsules of ground shrooms, and 10 or so make an eighth. And aah, we experimented.
Andy took 11 in the late afternoon on thursday, and we walked towards the lake with Kevin and Baby. Along the way we stopped at a free library and read some not-too-interesting knowledge… but all the same, i love those little libraries.
At the lake, ducks swam by on choppy water and the docks were especially wonk. They waved and we stood on them. I tried drawing a dog, a boot and a building but failed. Andy acted mostly normal, but seemingly in a good mood. We walked for a very long time, around Monona, by the terrace, down a far street…
There were many things to take pictures of, but we neglected bringing the camera. Whoops.
We stopped in this little corner garden with benches. The garden was pretty, and we enjoyed each other’s company until a drunk man walked by, intentionally scaring Baby. He was pretty obnoxious, standing near us and talking.There was this moment when i stopped listening to this old dude, and looked to Andy. We held eye contact for many minutes, as he seductively smoked his cigar. Eventually we tried to leave and the drunk dude was begging for money. He begged for money even though he has been telling us he bought booze from Adam at Red Star. Kevin gave him a dollar. Instead of money, i wrote a line from one of my poems and gave it to him. Tears like a rill running from narrow eyes undulating upward. “And from that day forward, he stopped drinking,” we laughed. We made it from Monona to Mendota shortly, and watched the sunset near the water. It was romantic and quite lovely. We found a spot that was very hidden away. We stood on a rock for a while and later satby the water. The sky faded into a rainbow of colors as bats flew around up, and a muskrat swam by. Our long walked ended eventually, and finally sitting on the couch was a relief.
The next day, we decided to have breakfast, then go to Domino’s for our paychecks, Blue Lotus and Rainbow Bookstore, all the while, i popped two pills at a time, every so often. i had a total of 13 capsules. I really felt the shroomie sensation after about 45 minutes. Weight and distance didn’t make sense, and everything felt heavy. I noticed it first at home again before going out again. I had to do bank things, but it was difficult since i couldn’t really control my face. I had a honey stick, that was just too incredible to look at and suck during the trip. In the bank it didn’t leave my mouth and the teller gave me strange looks. My handwriting on the deposit slip looked like my grandma’s. I walked out of the bank nearly running away. Andy drives a convertible, so i tried hopping in all smooth, but ended up on my ass in the road laughing. The climax of my high was probably the 3-8 minutes of uncontrollable laughter. I put my hat on my knee, all like “There is enough meat in my thigh to make an entirely different person!” It was super funny, you know.
I was very excited about how people can exist outside of myself, and how the dashboard sparkled and waved. Andy’s arm was squishy in a pleasing way, so i gripped it a lot. Also, i messed with his fingers; they are double-jointed and so they waved pleasingly.
Riding in a convertible was confusing. We were not inside or outside and it freaked me out a bit. I took many pictures with a film camera. They are probably only okay.
We stopped at a building and i stayed in the car, i tried taking a picture of a pipe, but it kept warping and freaking me out. There were a lot of colors flashing in my vision, real trippy.
We drove up to Hoyt Park and there is a wall, very high up. You can see the super Target from there. Being in the sun was preferable, and i sun bathed a bit. In my head i had vivid visions of the rays soaking into my skin and entering my body and heart and warming me.
Afterward we went to Brat-fest, to take pictures of the attractions and eat hot dogs. I felt like Andy and i were behind a screen and the other people were not real. We sat in the grass and ate hot dogs, analyzing the toddlers. Later we sat in a different patch of grass and ate funnel cake (with our faces) and everything tasted delicious.
I felt like everyone was looking at me, so i got my cool-face on and stuck my hands in my pockets. Walking around felt awkward and i waited for the feeling to go away. It didn’t for a long time. I wasn’t really feeling the effects by the time we got on a ride, but the ride was fun anyway: Spin out. Lots of spinning and upside-down. I lost my hat and Andy lost his glasses, but they were scattered about the ride, unharmed. We ran places and to the car.
As we drove beside the lake, the fence had a design that sped by against the sunset and made an impressive visual.
9/10 would trip again.
