I was just listening to The Empire (which I love and I would totally hang out with those guys if it didn't make me a creeper) and they were discussing all the times that they had smoked pot. They have smoked it so few times that they actually remember each instance. This just blows my mind.
I am always somewhat surprised when people haven't had the same experiences as me. What do you mean you don't know how long ecstasy takes to kick in? What do you mean you've never been arrested? What do you mean you've never gone home with strange guys? What do you mean you've never had a bonfire? I probably sound like a dick when this happens. I probably sound like one now. Then I feel like sharing my experiences, but I hate those druggy people who talk about all the stupid things they did when they were high. I mean, I like a good story, don't get me wrong, it's the people who brag about it that bothers me.
Am I doing that now? Fuck, see how I annoy myself?
Yet, there are plenty of things that most people have done that I haven't. I've never had a passport, I never even flew 'til I was 22. I never slept around. I can count the number of times I've eaten Thai food. I've never snorted anything (had to throw a drug reference in there so you don't think I'm all bad.) God knows I don't understand half the shit at work.
I suppose it is the people who I have surrounded myself with. Not that I am saying that they were bad people or anything. I still talk to a lot of them and fuck, we had a good fucking time! I guess people just have different priorities and desires and such. Some people backpacked around Europe and some of us smoked and played video games.
