#writephoto — Bad Trip

CB0889F6-B8AA-48DB-ABE4-162EB415C9F2“We were on vacation in Ireland and decided to take a spontaneous drive to the countryside one day,” Cal said.

“So we found this delightful old church that seemed like a great place to stop,” Ed added. “We decided to each drop a tab of acid to get our psychedelic on.”

“We had some wine, bread, and cheese while we waited for the acid to kick in,” Cal noted.

“Yeah, and then we started exploring the church grounds and that’s when we came across these really narrow stone steps,” Ed said. “We almost missed them because of all the dried leaves on the ground and the tall grass and weeds all around.”

“We were really tripping at that point and we started slowly descending those steep steps,” Cal said, “when we saw a freakin’ werewolf at the bottom.”

“Yes,” said Ed, “and this monster looked up at us with these fiery red eyes and huge fangs and growled at us.”

“We ran like hell to get out of there just as the huge werewolf lunged at us,” Cal said, “and got to the rental car just in time to save our lives. But before we ran from the steps, I took a picture of the werewolf with my iPhone. Look.”

Cal handed his phone to Jack, a classmate, who looked at the photo and then looked at Ed and Cal and shook his head. “You two assholes must have been having a bad trip. You took a picture of a black cat,” Jack said in a brusque manner. “I can’t tell you how much you two clowns annoy me at times. I honestly don’t know why I put up with you both.”

    If that’s the kind of thing you see, I’m rather glad I never bothered with drugs.

    I’ve heard things are less likely to go weird with the pure chemical than with mushrooms. Do you know anything about that?

      Not really. When I did acid years ago, it was the chemical variety.

    With my luck I would have a bad trip… a friend once said he saw the M&Ms candy guys going down a slide that came out of the wall.
