Water Monsters
Salvia divinorum

  smoked Salvia divinorum


I was with three friends at my lakehouse and we had salvia. I had smoked salvia a few times prior to this night and every time I was the only one who didn't trip. Everyone else always went nuts. I suppose I had never done it right. We sat in a cirlce and I watched as they smoked salvia out of a bong. I was the sitter, I guess. After they had a couple of rips you could tell it had hit them hard. One of them couldn't stop laughing, another expressed later that, during his trip, he had been worried he'd never be able to stand up again, and the last became quiet and noticeably disturbed. Once they had all calmed down I tried it, but didn't feel anything significant. So after a few hours I tried it again. This is what I remember:

I was working on a jigsaw puzzle as I took the first hit. It came back around and I took another. I forgot about the puzzle and somehow I felt like I was in the wrong chair. I couldn't determine how I had become so wet. I felt as if all of a sudden I had been submerged in grimy, cold water. In truth, it was raining a little outside so the bottom of my jean legs were a bit wet. I decided that my friends were the source of the water. I had to keep them at bay, or I'd get more dirty, freezing water on me. I tried to get up to go to another room to wait it out, but my legs buckled and I fell to the floor. Suddenly, my wet pants made me horribly uncomfortable so I started to take them off. My pants became a very scary tunnel I couldn't find my way out of. Then I put my pants back on, left the room and went to sleep.
