Speed Racer

Last night I dreamed a space shuttle orbiter crashed while landing in nearby Norman while I was there, and the smoke plume followed me as I drove home. I also dreamed that Abby and I were repeatedly interrupted by midgets while attempting to be intimate.

My mindset was odd as I arrived at work. One of my first routine duties is to upload news content to the web, so I opened up the front page in Indesign to see a friend and coworker, whose name I won’t mention, in an orange jumpsuit.

Two arrested for alleged attempt at meth making
An Asher couple was pulled over on Lonnie Abbott Blvd. near Taco Mayo for an expired tag on May 23rd but quickly found themselves in much deeper trouble.

This young woman is one of the people who routinely (and rightly) laughed at my jokes. She is bright and fun and… hmm. How do you go down that path?

Also of note: while reading our article, I realized I probably have all the ingredients to make meth. That doesn’t make me a meth maker, though, any more than having all the stuff to make pipe bombs (which I also probably do) makes me a terrorist.

I have heard a lot of bad things about methamphetamine, not the least of which is how destructive it is to the user's body. (This isn't my meth stuff - it's from a photo I shot of some police-confiscated meth stuff.)

  1. “That doesn’t make me a meth maker, though, any more than having all the stuff to make pipe bombs (which I also probably do) makes me a terrorist.”

    What if innocence trumped assumptions? Wouldn’t that be nice?

    “How do you go down that path?”

    I’ve never attempted to make meth, but that’s the only denial I’ll offer here. Whatever roads I went down, I was pretty sure my reasons were darkly unique to me — it’s easy to think that at the time. But I can promise that my reasons made sense to me in those days.
