As a gift, he brought Nancy a liter water bottle of his father-in-law's plum moonshine. It's basically just alcohol with a little plum flavoring. We were debating wether or not to try yesterday and I finally built up the courage to take a sip.
The guy's only advice had been to drink slowly and not to drink much. I put just a tiny drop, enough to cover the bottom of the glass, in and let it touch my lip. It smelled like delicious plum turpentine.
I drank it slowly, it numbed my lip and tongue. It hits like a hammer. The oddest sensation was that I could feel the skin on the palms of my hands. It was almost instant, a cloud went over my brain and I was aware of my movements.
I went to bed soon after. Today, my brain is a bit cloudy.
