Just had notification of another publication  Cheesy
Bit of a diversion as it's a humour rather than horror, but still excited - the site gets a lot of hits apparently

Feel free to check it out & let me know what you think

Congratulations, Dan!  afro I enjoyed my early morning read and it brought back memories. No, not of MY clubbing, but it certainly rang true for some of my students. A touch of Bonfire of the Vanities, there! Good job!

Well told, Dan. You kept the tension right to the end.

A beautiful rendition of my early cycling days. I too took revenge on motoring wise-asses in similar retribution. He he.

A bit worried now, though.

My daughter lives in Manchester...

A question, Dan.

Twice your characters refer to having "dropped" one. I guess this is street slang, but there were insufficient clues for me to work it out. In my slang dictionary it can refer to anything from murdering to farting, so which is it?

Thank you very much

Geoff - you have no need to worry, Manchester's a much nicer place than when i grew up there!

"Dropping" one refers to taking an ecstasy pill, the effects of which can be highly euphoric, though often distorting.

"Double dropping" is taking two at once, which may have the same effect as, for example, a couple of triple tequilas - ie not the wisest move!

Hope that clears it up  afro

Thanks, Dan.

I should have asked my daughter,  she knew Wink but only just replied her email.

My son, in Nottingham knew too. He said taking E tabs is sometimes referred to as going up a steep hill in his area.

Leaves you feeling all luvved-up and seeing colourful auras.  Personally, I prefer a few glasses of wine - at least the effect wears off quickly, if you decide you don't like it, and it doesn't result in an over-heated brain and excess cerebrospinal fluid  afro

A kid I used to know, he would take four or five E's in a night, and he got away with it for a long time, but one day he sat down at work, said he didn't feel right.  Sat there a while longer, said he couldn't feel his feet.  By the time his workmates got him to hospital he was paralysed from the neck down and laspsing into a coma.  He was lucky in that he gradually got better, but it took him years to recover from the paralysis.  Scary stuff. undecided

I suppose I'm a bit of a boring bugger, but I've never taken anything other than alcohol. I normally drink beer or wine, and I can feel the effects coming on, and how my body's handling it. I don't like the thought of suddenly losing control by taking one tablet / injection.

Me and my mates at university were into cars and beer. Not at the same time, of course  embarassed

I am even duller than you, Gerald, I dislike all intoxicating substances. I compare it to taking poison, I wouldn't do that voluntarily, so no alcohol or drugs(smokes too) for me. Though I was intrigued by Aldous Huxley's experiments with mescalin in The Doors of Perception Wink

congrats on your story, Dan smiley
