So today I turned 21. My buddy, let’s call him Ted, came and picked me up from the barracks on base. We had to drop off a friend of our off at the airport and then he took me to a bar and I had my first legal shot of alcohol. Tequila followed by a lick of salt and a bite of lemon… Not bad, not my favorite, but not bad.
From the bar we headed over to a fellow church members house, we can call him Bill. Apparently Bill’s girl was coming into town from New Orleans and she was bringing both Ted and I a gift for helping fix Bill’s floor a few weeks back. Bill’s girlfriends, Nancy, was there at the mobile home when we pulled. She seemed like a nice enough girl. She gave both of us a taser, that’s what the gift turned out to be.
Well of course I wanted to try the taser out… I mean how cool would it be to watch someone get taser’d!! Ted pretty much told me to go to hell, and Bill wasn’t interested either! I even offered to let them taser me in return. They still said no! So I wasn’t sure what I was gonna do, but then I had this great idea. Why don’t I just taser myself!! How bad could it be I figured, I could control the length of time it was on me even, this would be kinda cool.
So I sat on the edge of Bill’s couch as everyone watched. I figured I’d put the taser on my thigh muscle, since it was the biggest muscle in the body. So I started the taser up, the zapping noise was crazy sounding, and I put it on my thigh. The next thing I know my hand holding the taser against my thigh flew off and I was sitting on the ground. It had felt like my entire thigh muscle had had such a violent spasm that I got shot off the couch lol.
Everyone had a good laugh, it was a hell of a cool experiment in my opinion.
