Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride

“No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride…and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well…maybe chalk it off to forced conscious expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten.” – Hunter S. Thompson
 
Ok Hunter.
I’m in.
Not even gonna put my safety harness on or brace for impact.
Not even going to blame anybody if this all goes wrong.
The safety inspectors all retired and their replacements are on strike.
I’ll wear the helmet, but not the googles, I’m already not seeing too clearly.
There’s no football until September.
I’ll make it until then.
Nope nobody smokes cigarettes anymore,
but we got more beer than you can shake a stick at and weed is legal all over.
Oh the rides starting.
I’m just gonna close my eyes when we get to the top.
