Borderline Retarded

Wednesday, May 03, 2006

Oh, God - I am such an idiot!

I totally lied to a co-worker today. LIED!

She and I both grew up in Napa and we were reminiscing about our teenage years. Specifically, The "rebops" and the old graveyard out on Partrick Road. She started mentioning some graveyards around the valley that were worth checking out. They have some beautiful old headstones. She said that at one in particular she and a friend used to do "balloons". She asked if I knew what that was. Instead of just fessing up that I have no clue, I just laughed and said, "Sure I do!".

So, what the hell does that mean? I am counting on the input of someone much cooler than me, possibly with a checkered past, to clue me in.

This is the T.H.O. incident all over again!


  • This is just a guess, as if it's what I think it is, I've never heard it refered to as "doing balloons". But I suspect she was talking about inhaling N20 from a whippit. It's usually released into a balloon first so that you don't freeze your insides.

  • oh. I hope it's not #2 on the "balloon" word lookup. That's feral.

  • "Baloons" is similar to a "whippit", it was really big and still may be, with the whole "RAVE" scene. They are litterally balloons filled with laughing gas. You buy your balloon for a couple bucks, maybe more now, and you inhale a bit here or there and you get even more stupid than you started.

    NO...I never did "balloons". Sucking on balloons seems like clown porn, and that's just wrong.
