NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #51 ~ 01-02-15]

Big-Youth-lydon CROP 1

“Don came to spend a couple of days at my place in Venice. As usual, he popped some street acid someone gave him, with absolutely no knowledge about its quality or quantity. Anyway, Don started coming down off his peak, but was still hallucinating somewhat and was feeling a tad paranoid. He wanted something to drink. So he wandered into the kitchen, didn’t turn on the light because he claimed acid made it possible for him to see in the dark – like a cat. I could hear him opening cupboard doors, looking for a drinking glass. As I was a bit buzzed myself, it was too much of an effort to tell him which cupboard the glasses were in. A couple of months earlier I went to a friend’s big pot luck Thanksgiving Day bash and my task was to make a big baked yam/sweet potato casserole. So, for some reason I bought a huge bag of yams – but couldn’t possibly prepare all of them, so I put the remaining potatoes, in their net bag, up in the cupboard. Any kind of tuber of the potato family, left in the dark for a couple of months, will grow long tendrils whilst seeking root space and/or sunlight. And that’s what almost ten remaining pounds of yams did: grew lots and lots of two to three-foot long tendrils. When Don opened the cupboard door in the dark, hundreds of long, thin white tendrils cascaded down on him. He let out a shriek. Seconds later, he bolted out through the kitchen door, ashen, eyes the size of boiled eggs, still screaming and waving his arms frantically. Bits and pieces of severed yam tendrils were flying everywhere and hanging from his hair. He started flashing that he’d been attacked by aliens hiding in my kitchen cabinet.”
