Just Keep Making Lefts

(Originally published in the KALX Spring/Summer 2001 Program Guide)

True story: I had one of the most difficult drives of my life this last Saturday. It was after a party in Sebastopol where I had arrived early and, not having eaten much all day, started poking around in the kitchen for something to eat. Happening upon a tupperware container of delicious-looking cookies, I ate one and found it tasty. Underneath the chocolaty goodness I caught a hint of another taste, one that is still technically illegal. This caused me a twinge of concern, but then I thought, how could anything this delectable be dangerous? So I had another.
