So me and a friend had been waiting around and chilling, trying to set a night to drop the eighth of shrooms I had bought from a mutual friend. The time rolled around on the Saturday we had picked and we sat down with a bottle of OJ and the dried shrooms. We just chewed them and washed it down with the orange juice, which killed the taste pretty well. They didn't taste good, but it wasn't as horrible as people say. Anyway, we sat around for about half an hour waiting for them to kick in. He was sitting there playing FFT, trying to let the trip hit him, while I stood around, critically examining everything. After a little while, I started feeling pretty talkative and weird ideasd kept popping into my head. He told me he didn't really feel any different. After a bit we went outside and looked at the lake. All the lights from the buildings up the hill were shining against the lake, and it completely blew my mind. Also, the light reflecting from the snow seemed to bore a hole right into my conciousness, like it was shining through from behind reality, like pinpoints of light. It was at this point that my friend remarked "This is weak." And decided to head back inside. The shrooms hadn't affected him yet. We went inside and he assumed I must be exaggerating what I was feeling cuz he didn't get much of a change. About half an hour later though he was tripping alright. He said the corner of the room was warping and sliding around and the patterns on his bed were shifting around on his covers. At this point I was tripping a little harder. Outside, everything seemed very alien and interesting. Any cars that drove by seemed to have a sort of blurry aura; they looked like futuristic cars. The sounds they made seemed different as well. I jammed through two cigarettes, watching the smoke curl and weave around. It's pretty amazing looking. Finally we came back inside and had a talk. Shrooms really open up your mind. We both decided to go to sleep but we couldn't becuase we were still tripping. I was awake for the better part of two hours before my mind finally calmed down. I woke up after six or seven hours feeling refreshed and happy. What a great drug. I can't wait to get more and trip harder.
