Last night I had a plan. A deadly plan? Perhaps, but if it were I escaped deaths cold embrace. You can read about part one here.
So the night wound down. We finally drove what was remaining of the ground out into the foggy streets with the “terrible” music we were playing. I packed up my gear, hung out with some friends who work at the bar for a bit and then headed out. As I hinted at briefly Buffalo was under a deep fog last night. It was beyond creepy. I’ve seen the movies. I know what kind of creatures live in the fog, and I want no part of them, okay maybe I would like a glance of them. I got in my car, turned the stereo up loud and hit play on The Omen soundtrack. If you ever want creepy mood music that album is the way to go.
As I pulled away I cracked open this can of Koma. As you may or may not know if I have any sort of stimulant after, oh I don’t know….noon, I can’t fall asleep at night. It’s a fairly recent thing that began about six months ago. It’s pretty terrible, but drinks like this help keep me in line. I knew I was going to have trouble since I drank that can of Liquid Ice at around 10PM. So I drank the contents of the can as I made my way down to the waterfront in the fog to fully enjoy the creepiness of it all. To my surprise this drink also tasted like liquefied candy. This time it was Pixie Stix, specifically the blue and purple ones. I have no complaints with that. I am a kid at heart, with an apparent subconscious desire for diabetes. So there I was driving around in an insane fog listening to a choir yell in Latin about the devil. I started to feel a bit “chillaxed” (god I hate that word), so I decided I should make my way home. I made it without incident from the fog, or as a side effect of my beverage. I climbed into bed where I promptly fell asleep. Oh wait no that didn’t happen. I laid there for hours, but in a relaxed state. It was strange. Normally when I can’t sleep my mind is racing, but last night I was just awake, not really thinking about anything. Obviously the drink worked a bit, as I was relaxed, but not as well as other beverages of this type I have tried. Well perhaps I shouldn’t say that since I did drink an energy drink five hours prior. I don’t blame you Koma. I wish you were stronger so I could sleep but then you would be a sleep drink and not a relaxation one. I guess I just used you for the wrong purposes. You did taste pretty nice though.
