So here's the absinthe story. LGG and I discovered one day that No5 was selling absinthe. Not knowing that it was the clean stuff, we wanted to give it a try, to see if we'd get to see the green fairy.
We were too chicken to get our own drink each, so we ordered one to SHARE, and just in case we passed out, we gave our addresses to Larry with instructions to take us home safely.
We sipped the drink, and waited. And waited. And wondered whether we'd be able to see the green fairy.
Soon it became apparent that we wouldn't be experiencing any hallucinations. We were stoked that we tried absinthe (went around asking our friends, have you tried absinthe huh huh huh? WE HAVE!) but obviously we didn't do it properly.
That's why when the opportunity arose to do it right, we just had to. Lol.
