Once again more acid was taken, more mushrooms, more DMT… I’ve been in and out of consciousness and backed up on the winners, so how about this, here is another winner…

Cosmo wrote: Dear Paul… When I was 13 a lot of Felix the Cat acid was being taken, they called it “illusion” I had been taking it here and there, Frying on Fridaze, Felix’s face only appeared every four hits, so I was determined to take the four… This was the first time I took 4 hits, I had the full face, and ran around and showed everyone as it soaked into my tounge. Haha! We used to hitchhike up Mt. Tam and trip out in the Miwok tree, it was a fairly safe place back then, and far enough from civilization. We were having trouble hitchhiking, no one was picking us up, there was also 7 of us, but the ACID was kicking in hard and I was starting to panic!!!!! Then all of a sudden my mom pulls up?! Fuck!!! She’s pissed!! She’s yelling and sounds like a dragon!!! She piles us in and drives everyone as she’s lecturing, her words become more and more warped, I sat in the car frozen, my friends not saying a word… She dropped everyone off, and continued to yell at me, I was sweating and freaking out in my mind, her voice echoed in every part of my soul! She decided to take me home, to see what my Dad would say, when we got to my house, he knew something was wrong, he took me outside away from my mom, he asked “what are you on?” I said “the most acid I’ve ever taken and I’m away from all my friends who are on it” he laughed and gave me a ride. I will always love him for that!! Best Dad ever!

Hahaha! Thanks Cosmo! And thank you to everyone who participated!!! Keep sending the stories!!
