Gratifying oneself was the fad of the day
The birth of the Flower Power generation had been born and in addition to being active record buyers they had also adopted marijuana as the drug of choice. Despite its reputation of ill repute, marijuana produced astute awareness to the user's senses while listening to music. Certainly, I make no claim to mirror Timothy Leary here, but smoking pot seemed to trigger additional senses towards enjoying a records' intensity. Every puff magnified the powerful trance of enjoying music combined with the overwhelming urge to indulge in a bag of Doritos. Once under the influence, your confidence level escalated while your instinctive judgment went on Spring break. Achieving herbal fulfillment might entice you to engage in a series of daring experiments such as attempting to communicate in a normal voice after inhaling a balloon filled with Freon gas. Another trendy exercise was streaking naked across the college campus in full view of classmates. Never one to be outdone, my former roommate's favorite prank was blowing marijuana smoke into his dog's face only to witness his aroused pet drool slobber on his pants while humping his leg. We enjoyed doing all the wrong things right.
