Let’s see. I have definitely been drunk. Lol. Although I have the same problem as you. If I drink to the point of drunkenness, I don’t get sociable, I get sleepy. Drinking and parties is a bad idea for me because I tend to just want to leave.

I used to quite enjoy marijuana. My boyfriend and I in Montreal had a delivery service with the same deal as Domino’s. If it doesn’t show up at the door within a certain period of time, it’s half price! I loved how marijuana enhances sensory experiences.

A couple of years ago, though, I tried smoking again and did not enjoy it. I didn’t even finish the small amount that I bought legally in Detroit.

I have done LSD and magic mushrooms, and enjoyed them tremendously. I would do them again with the right people in the right setting. It’s very important to be comfortable and in a trusting environment.

Hate cocaine. Just hate it. Oh, the initial rush is interesting, but it fades super fast and then you desperately want more. And that shit is ridiculously expensive and bad for you. Nah, I’ll pass.

I never cheated on a test, but I did cheat on my security clearance examination. I lied and said I was straight. I’d do it again.

I’ve never had a speeding ticket, but I did get a ticket once for not stopping at a stop sign, which I absolutely stopped at. I was driving a work truck full of Black people in Detroit, and we were stopped as we entered a white suburb. I’m pretty sure I know why the cop went out of his way to stop us.

I have kissed a girl! Crazy, right? She sent me love notes in the 10th grade, and I did my best to send nice poems back. One disastrous day we made out in her basement. I hated every second of it, which she obviously realized. I’m kind of ashamed of myself for having led her on. I eventually came out to her as gay, which relieved her mind a little bit.

That’s all I’ve got for right now. :-)
