Have you ever been stoned in a grocery store?
At best, it’s the longest trip of your adult life. At worst, like this guy finds, it’s a precursor to PTSD-like symptoms.
It starts out literally marvelous, as the grocery story is a fascinating place when you really think about it:
“All this food is really just ingredients for poop.”
And then it turns ethical, as you draw connections between the mass consumerism and its origins:
“This is like a farm animal cemetery.”
Then sensory overload becomes an actual debilitating obstacle that is pretty much impossible to overcome. You’re sure this was the worst decision you could have made. Every instance of eye contact is a cruel investigation of your sobriety that you will fail:
“Oh god she knows. Oh she definitely knows. I gotta go.”
Will you come out alive? It will be a close call.
