…Why Hello There…

November 20, 2007

I had one of those penultimate awkward moments on Friday night. Or maybe early Saturday morning.

After getting in from work, I blew some time here at MKV before finally getting my act together and heading off to a party that I’d been invited to off-campus. Chap I sit with in Econ was throwing a little something, and had invited me along. Very late, compared to when I said I’d show, I wandered over. After a fairly significant walk, I arrived at a nice little place on an innocent seeming street. Wandered inside, and the air was somewhat blue, and there were drunk & stoned people everywhere. It was kinda like going home. I grabbed the gent who’d invited me, had a few drinks, then started into meeting the various chaps & gals at the party. Sadly, most of the ladyfolk there took off just after I got there – their cab having arrived and all, sadly.

However, we got further down to the business of the night, drinking rum and smoking mediocre pot from “Walter” – also known as buckets, waterfalls, or a gravity bong. I’ve not used one in ages, and was … caught off guard. By the end of our session, I was pretty Done, and they were much further along.

Shortly after, as I was puzzling over how to get home, what song I’d drunkenly sing AT FULL VOLUME as I walked, and why there were so many shiny objects in the same room, some other UW students announced their imminent departure from the same party towards the University.

I gleefully joined them, this removing the conundrums of “how” and the singing from my list of decisions, as well as giving time & means of control to someone else. When the taxi they called, we all jubilantly piled in, announced our destination, and then there was a Moment. Grinning at me from the front seat, the driver of our vehicle … Ohno. He’s a Regular at Café KW, in a big way. Sits up by the machine, same thing every time, in every day. I like him. He tips well, is always polite, and generally good fun to chat with when it’s slow. I really want him to respect me.

…And there I am, jouncing into his taxi, totally out of my tree, smelling of rum and potsmoke.

    *grins* I took my little brother to Rainbucket. Which, though a completely different situation and completely different story still has the “ohfuck, this is totally not a situation I want to be in” vibe.

    And finished it off by coming home and, with a house full of boyscouts, rolled two joints in my bedroom.

    Heh. Given your protectiveness of the boy, I suspect I was more allright being in his cab than you were camping with the kid.

    Good call. Boy Scouts like natural things. Though boo on joints. Pipes FTW.
