He doesn't sniff at a tiny dot of coke balanced at the rim of a novelty spoon, or haltingly insufflate a delicate line operating alongside the sting of a bowie knife. No, Dord prefers his cocaine to be administered in lots, hillocks, veritable mountains, tumbling, tumbling piles and pyramids and pylons of cocaine. He desires every one bump to be so major that he has difficulty truly getting it into his nose, like a guy wrestling a major sandwich into his mouth.

He can think that odd banana body spray commence broiling away within the backside entrance of his mind. quickly it is going to suffuse each one lobe and tickle his backbone, making every thing dance and jitter to an enticing rhythm. “You do be aware of that we’re performing some lovely fucking high-pressure shit the following, correct, Dave? ” asks Zimmerman. “I been made acutely aware. ” “So it most likely isn’t too a good idea to be coked to the gills for this, is what I’m announcing. ” “I recognize what you’re announcing. I’d commonly argue within the other way, notwithstanding. ” “And why is that? ” Dord stares into the street prior to them. The headlights make swimming pools of sunshine at the asphalt. occasionally it feels as though they're chasing the swimming pools instead of following the line, like they're approximately to jump up off the earth and dive into that glittering move of tarred rock and white streaks.
