On Spicey Food

I never liked spicy food. I always thought that it was preposterous that anyone could like spicy food. It seemed made-up to me that anyone actually liked the experience of pain while they ate their food. It seemed more an exhibition of machismo to like spicy food then an actual appreciation of the food. It took me being stoned one day (today) to understand what it is to like spicy food. It's an act of self-mutilation. It's a teenager cutting himself. It's the only thing that's real.
