I’ve been hanging out with a guy I knew from high school lately and until last night we were becoming better friends. We went out drinking and he was acting like a real dick and hit me in the face with a pool cue. I told him I thought he was an asshole and to get away from me. When I left the bar about 20 minutes later he was waiting outside and started walking next to me trying to apologize and he was breathing very heavily so I knew he was angry underneath the apologetic exterior. I told him I didn’t give a shit about his apology and then he asked me if I wanted to fight, I just kept walking and ignoring him and went home.
The thing is this guy used to be nothing like the way he acts now. He used to be sort of shy but normal and kind of smart. While he was a student at Georgia Tech he tried this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimson_weed stuff and took the doses of 2-3 people instead of just one. I heard from other people about what happened and he has talked about it too. He was messed up for days and pissed himself, started putting his clothers in the freezer, thought a homeless guy in his bed, and kept talking about how Santa was the guy from Cheers, and also started slamming his head on a concrete floor repeatedly. When he finally recovered he didn’t remember any of it. Not long after this he failed out of school. I seriously think this guy has brain damage from that. His personality seems completely different. Everything he does seems to be completely random like misfirings in his head or something. Anyway I don’t plan on hanging out with him anymore.
