We All Do Silly Things

I was reading the post about the item of clothing that was given away to an attractive person and it brought back a memory. Years ago I lived in a downtown highrise with two roommates. One had an attractive friend who was much younger than me and a sort of free spirit type who worked in the insurance industry. Not my usual preference as I prefer older women but she was interesting and seemed to enjoy speaking with me. A few times I accompanied her onto the balcony while she smoked weed. She always offered to share but I never partook as I worked nights in healthcare and took my profession very seriously. The last time we talked on the balcony she asked me if I'd ever trid meth. I hadn't. Not my thing at all. Too much addiction in my family and high school friends too. But, for some reason I said "Yes". I'm not sure why. Perhaps it was that I'd been single for a very long time. Perhaps I wanted her to think I was cooler than I was. Perhaps it was her, to me, unique look and her inviting way of looking at me. Perhaps it was just the wrong body part speaking for me. I don't know. I never saw her again after that as I soon moved into my own apartment in the building.

This is the Confessions page. He confessed to taking Meth and that he is not sure why he took it.

What a great story. It reminds me of yesterday. I smelled a fart. I was the only one in the room. I realized I farted and didn't even know. it really gave me a lot to think about.
