I tried aci last year for thefirst time
I've about eight minutesleft up here,
and then I'll talkto all of you.
But I'd always heard acidwas a good drug
to do outdoors in nature.
I live in New York City.
Not a lot of places to go.
So I ate the acid,and I went to Central Park.
And I found the big lakein the middle of Central Park.
I found a nice little rockby the side of the lake.
And I was just sitting there,minding my business,
watching the ducksfloat on the water.
About ten minutes go by,I turn to my right,
and there's a young little girlsitting next to me on the rock.
And she looks up at meand she goes,
"Hey, mister,you want to hear a riddle?"
And I was like,"Absolutely.
"I've never wantedto hear a riddle
"so badly before in my life.
What you got, kid?"
And she goes,"What's the beginning of end,
"the end of time,
and the beginning and endof everywhere?"
And I was like, "Whoa..."
Like, does she knowI'm on acid right now?
I'm expecting how much woodwould a woodchuck chuck
if a woodchuckcould chuck wood?
She's coming at meabout space and time.
Wasn't ready for it,so I asked her to repeat it.
She said,"What's the beginning of end,
the end of time, beginningand end of everywhere?"
Does anyone know?WOMAN:E!
The letter E.
Some shit she read on the backof a Laffy Taffy wrapper
almost altered my existence.
The point is, though,if you're ever in the park,
and you see a grown man
intensely talkingto a young girl,
don't assume the worst, okay?
He could just be on acid.
I ate the acid
as an artist, hoping for somekind of creative epiphany.
The next day,I checked the notepad
that I brought with meto the park.
The only thingI had written down was:
"Can ducks evertruly enjoy a Saturday,
or are they alwaysjust trying to survive?"
guess it waspretty good acid.
