Instead, I was high up from the nectar of the gods, floating around in half moon goblets, which were literally rolling around the table. Kunga had given us a bottle of the finest Whiskey known to man, and our first experience with Nirvana.
We told stories with a common thread, laughter. It is the same weaving in every language. The next morning I discov…
