 like how there are so many possible angles of interpretation.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

It was then when deeply immersed in the pleasure of that trip, he had a sudden loud clear voice in his head saying "it is bitter tea that involves you so."




This part is what has been concerning me.

It almost sounds like when you're having fun just doing, and your so-called "rational" or "grown-up mind" butts in and says, "stop being so childish".

Well, that may be... but then, perhaps they're saying that sometimes its a good idea to listen to the grown-up mind?

Or maybe that just because our kid brains scream WHOOOHOOO!!! that doesn't mean it won't be bitter tea in the end...

Or, perhaps...

Hypoc had just communed with St. Gulik... when I commune with the Messenger Saint I often find myself seeking a beverage. Perhaps the message is "When you are stoned, don't drink old tea to get rid of the cottonmouth."  :fnord:

You know, for me the whole exercise collapses if it's simply about a guy who got stoned and did something stupid.

Hmm, has the makings of a good PSA to keep the kiddos from smoking the pot.   

Right, I need to go find me a grant.  So which one of you spags want to star in my public service Ad as Hypoc?

TRYING TO MAKE A DECENT CUP OF TEA WITH LAST NIGHT'S DREGS MIGHT SOUND LIKE A BAD IDEA...



BUT ON METH IT'S NOT.

I always took it as a metaphor for not leaving the tea brew too long.

Ah! What a lovely cup of tea!
