I did lots of pot between the ages of 19 and 21 and went to a Cocteau Twins concert back then. I think I still have the t-shirt! Galaxy 500 opened. I was so stoned I don't remember anything or even how I got home. All I remember is the chandeliers in the theatre and lots of instrumental music lulling me to new highs. I think I was late for work the next day too. A complete blur. I was with a Christian lady friend I had met in church and we were both experimenting with pot. Me moreso than she. I got her stoned too and she was just fried. lol. I don't think we even said a word to each other, we were so out of it. I vaguely remember smoking up in a parking lot in the back alley with her. Man, were we baked.
